The power of employment for people with disabilities builds self-confidence, shapes identity, and enhances self-sufficiency, making our community better for ALL of us.
It gives them the opportunity to grow emotionally and socially while having fun with their peers at Camp Sun ‘N Fun, and their caregivers enjoy a brief period of respite.
~The Arc Gloucester
It is an investment into positive outcomes for youth through our mentoring program.
~Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region
United Way support is a MUST for Center for People in Transition in aiding annually 350 Displaced Homemakers and 700 Community Members to reach lives of increased self-worth and self-sufficiency after the trauma of divorce, death or disability of spouse.
~Center for People in Transition
Our pantry clients, many small and under-funded, depend upon United Way resources to feed the 35,290 people living with food insecurity in Gloucester County.
~Food Bank of South Jersey
It enables our Council to bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls in economically disadvantaged communities who have few positive options in their lives.
~Girl Scouts of Central & Southern New Jersey
It enables us to provide academic support and affordable quality care to children while their parents pursue employment and/or higher education.
~Glassboro Child Development Centers
Our adults, who are medically fragile, are able to enjoy all aspects the community has to offer because a nurse accompanies them to theatrical shows, bowling, movies, shopping, dining, the parks, and some volunteering opportunities.
It allows us to target their specific literary needs and then move in the direction that will best serve them by reaching into the community in more strategic ways.
~Literacy New Jersey
Through it, members of our communities with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders reclaim their lives, restore relationships, and build promising futures.
It provides the necessary equipment and supplies to maintain a comprehensive educational program and safe environment where young children of low-income families can learn and grow.
