How are you/your organization serving during the pandemic?
Community Access Unlimited is a Union County-based nonprofit that serves people with disabilities and at-risk youth across New Jersey. We give a voice to individuals who historically hold little power in society, assisting our members with housing, life skills, employment, personal finance, relationships, civic engagement, and much more.
I ensure members are able to receive necessary services in a timely manner and with no interruptions. I am responsible for entering our program members' intakes and making sure their documentation is completed on time, so that they can continue to participate in programs of their choosing. I also assist with events and educational classes held for our members.
At the Day Program, we strive to maintain a positive and creative environment for all members served. Although each member of our staff has different roles, we all share the common goal of serving our members.
Acts 20:35 King James Version
"I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' "
