President’s Message

As the largest NCJW section in the country, NCJW/Essex in New Jersey has a big responsibility to be innovative and pioneering within our organization. Due to the wonderful work of our volunteers and staff, we have been successful in living up to this challenge. With a membership of more than 3200, we have been able to expand our reach within our community to offer help and support where needed.

NCJW/Essex services women, children and families throughout the Essex County area. We accomplish this with our advocacy work on the local and state level, through our wonderful Center for Women where we help women who are in need of career services, legal and emotional support, and by offering community outreach programs such as the Teen Dating Abuse Awareness program and our Rainbows program. We work hard to collaborate with other agencies and organizations to make sure we are all serving the needs of our community to the best of our ability.

Please consider becoming one of our volunteers and supporting NCJW/Essex in any way you can. There are so many ways to get involved. As you click through our website, peruse all the opportunities and choose the best fit for you at NCJW/Essex!
