As the calendar year draws to a close, thoughts often turn to those unfortunately burdened by ongoing economic and social challenges. From the United Way’s ALICE project to Legal Services of New Jersey’s recent report, ample evidence exists of how too many in the state struggle with essentials like food and shelter.
