With more than 30 years of experience, we have developed a proven formula for delivering services. From our grassroots inception to our statewide reach today, we have provided free assistance to nearly 2000 families in need.
ECF served more than 260 families all over New Jersey, an increase over last year.
Caseworkers made 582 home visits (12 more than last year) and provided an additional 1606 hours of services, at no cost to the families.
Regional Centers provided well over $64,644 in food and material assistance to families, and collected and distributed a record $17,775 in gift cards!
2624 bags of groceries were delivered to families by volunteers in our four Regions.
279 birthday bags were sent to ECF kids and their siblings.
412 holiday gift wishes were filled for ECF kids and their siblings.
We distributed nearly $6300 of emergency funding to families in dire financial situations, helping with expenses such as mortgage payments, utility bills to prevent shut-off of services, reimbursement for meals for parents who are with their child in the hospital, and rental assistance. This is almost $1000 more than we provided last year.
Dedicated volunteers logged in an amazing 2692 hours. We couldn't do it without you!
Funding for the year was well diversified:
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS POSSIBLE!
