South Orange is partnering with Essex County and Seton Hall University to create and launch the Community Care & Justice Program. The CC&J mission: to engage South Orange community members in designing and traveling their own wellness journeys, with a particular focus on protecting and elevating our most vulnerable members and our youth.
What does that mean, practically speaking? We are doing a needs assessment first to tell us where to focus, but CC&J might include programs like 911 Diversion, Restorative Practice Councils, dialogue on How To Be An Anti-Racist, Community & First Responder Mental Health Awareness Training and more.
CC&J is designed to be community driven, and so we need your help!
