Day of Service 2021

This Administration’s Day of Service will be held on November 13, 2021 and will benefit Covenant House.

“Covenant House New Jersey provides comprehensive residential care and related services to help New Jersey’s youth who have suffered from abuse, neglect, abandonment homelessness, and human trafficking build a life for themselves that is good. We journey with our young people from the streets to their Residential Crisis Centers, to our transitional living homes, and on to independent living in the community to help them break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.”

More information will be provided at the June District Councils. If you are interested in becoming a District Chairman, please contact Barbara Rose, rose@njsfwc.org.
