As 2017 comes to an end, we are reflecting on a remarkable year of service. As we look forward to an even more impactful 2018, we ask that you consider supporting NJCDC with a year-end donation. Our success is directly attributable to friends and supporters like you.

In 2017, NJCDC served over 3,000 children and families each day. We expanded our community revitalization work by completing the construction of Park Corner Plaza, our newest project providing affordable housing to people in need. We also began a program to make repairs in the homes of the elderly and disabled, and we've provided apartments to another 44 people who are now formerly homeless. In January, we will open a new youth center for local teens.

In 2018, we look forward to expanding our impact on Paterson youth. In January, we will cut the ribbon on our new Great Falls Youth Center, which will offer local teens supervised programs and services, computers, meeting rooms, and a full state-of-the-art recording studio. And we will also continue our annual scholarship dinner for Paterson's brightest high school graduates who are heading to four-year colleges.

While we have accomplished a great deal, there is much more to be done. Your tax-deductible contribution will help us to achieve our mission and will have a direct impact on Paterson children and families, as 93 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to our program and services.

Our goal is that all 8,000 children who live or go to school in our neighborhood will graduate from high school college and career ready, but we'll only be able to reach it with the trust and assistance of caring people like you.

Support Our Work!
We at NJCDC are keenly aware of the challenging economic times. 93 cents of every dollar donated to NJCDC goes directly to programs which help families, teens, children and people with disabilities.
