Food — More than 1,400 households per month visit our three free Client Choice stores in Trenton and Princeton for quality, heart-healthy foods and personal care products; regular delivery to clients who are older or have disabilities; urban community gardens; free health screenings through partner Capital Health System; and nutrition education.
Housing — Our Homelessness Prevention program stabilizes up to 700 households annually through emergency assistance via back rent, security deposit, utilities, and mortgage aid. Our Housing Stability program identifies and works in partnership with individuals and families through one-on-one progress meetings, connection to untapped services for which they are eligible, life and job skills training and mentoring, and extended financial support to establish housing stability.
Job Support — Some 60 adult trainees enroll each year for on-site job and customer service skill-building experience in our pantry operations; online curriculum for learning and certification in food handling and retail/customer service; life skills mentoring; and job search and interview skills guidance.
License to Succeed—This program assists with costs, fines, fees, and testing associated with obtaining or restoring a driver’s license, a key factor in qualifying for more and better-paying jobs.
