Patty Kremen Celebrates 10 Years with NCJW/Essex!


Patty has been the inspiration for so many programs at the heart of the Center for Women (CFW), including Pack the Pantry which is why we are collecting food gift cards in her honor.

Please Donate to Celebrate Patty’s 10 Years of Service

(gift cards only – please do not drop off food at the office). Gift cards are always needed and greatly appreciated by our CFW clients as they empower women to shop for and purchase exactly the food their family needs.

Thank you, Patty!

Patty’s love, dedication, and commitment for the CFW, her clients, and co workers is heartwarming and comes through in everything she does . She is compassionate, empathetic, loyal and devoted. We are so fortunate and grateful to have her lead our CFW. Thank you Patty for your professionalism, unwavered devotion, and continued support and leadership. ~ Andrea Mintz, VP, CFW

Patty goes not only the extra mile for clients, she goes an extra 10 miles. Whether it is addressing food insecurity, making sure families have holiday gifts, engaging clients with the Back to School store, or being a cheerleader for a client who is feeling discouraged, Patty makes sure that clients know the Center for Women is there for them in their time of need. This is in addition to ensuring we are providing the best services for vulnerable populations of women who are in need of “survival” employment or of higher paying, more stable employment to support themselves and their families. Patty is the Wonder Woman of the CFW and she inspires all of us to serve our clients well. ~ Kathy Murphy, CFW

Patty listens to her clients, assesses their job options and helps them to create a plan to move forward in their job search. She does it with expertise, compassion and understanding. Patty’s clients adore her as they should and greatly value the career services that she provides. ~ Barbara Sunberg, CFW
