WE HAVE OUTGROWN OUR SPACE

The National Park Fire Department graciously donated their Banquet Hall to us for the past two years.  When we opened our doors in National Park in January, 2015, we served 115 families in one afternoon with food.  When we came to a close in 2016, we were serving nearly 200 families a month with food, clothing, and HOPE for a brighter tomorrow.  December 20, 2016 was our last Food & Clothing Distribution at the National Park Fire Hall, and we have been on the search for a larger facility.  We believe that our new location will have plenty of parking, classrooms, and enough room to accommodate more people, more food, more clothing, and more resources.  Why expand?  According to the most recent, there are over 180,000 people in South Jersey living in poverty.  We have only just begun to fulfill our mission...to break the cycle of poverty, and restore dignity to people's lives. How? By meeting basic needs, such as food, clothing, baby and household items, combined with professional, personal and spiritual development.   Stay tuned for updates as we continue our search. If you are not on our email list, please subscribe today.  If you know of a building that you would like to recommend, please contact us at nfortunato@southjerseydreamcenter.org.  

God Bless, Pastor Joe and Natalie Fortunato

 

Dear Friends: We have a brief video update for you! We want you to know what's been happening as the search for our new location continues, and how we've been serving in our community. At the same time, we are looking for a large, permanent facility to fulfill our mission...to break the cycle of poverty, and restore dignity to people's lives.
