Which of our impact areas are you most passionate about? I believe the three pillars that UWMOC focuses on are the cornerstones of a successful life. They are intertwined and inseparable. Without financial stability, the chances of achieving and maintaining good health are greatly diminished. Also, when children are concerned about family financial instability and food insecurity, it has been proven time and again they are far more likely to fall behind in school. In addressing all three of these areas collectively, we can make the biggest impact and secure the best outcome possible for those in our community.
What does “Living United” mean to you? By aiding others in achieving their maximum potential, helping families get ahead, and assuring that basic needs are being met, we can bridge gaps in the challenges faced by the underserved residents in Monmouth and Ocean counties. Working together for the common good has never been more important than it is today. With the many challenges our community is facing, it is imperative that we Unite to close the cracks so the most vulnerable in our community do not slip into despair. We must continue to identify issues, respond, and rebuild together.
