CJCDC Family Support Program

The CJ Community Development Corporation seeks to help families throughout the year, especially during winter and the holidays. Life can be rough on families financially, physically, and spiritually.  CJCDC has been blessed to be a part of the community of Newark & Plainfield, NJ and we have developed partnerships and programs to assist those in need of some support (ex. Housing, education, medical care, food, employment, etc). If you or someone that you know is a resident of Essex or Union County and needs assistance, become a part of the CJCDC Family Support Program. To join, you must meet the following criteria:
