NEW! Basic Needs Assistance Brochure
The Gloucester County Resource Council is a network of human service organizations in Gloucester who meet monthly to share ideas, information and resources. Cooperative, inter-agency efforts are planned and initiated in an attempt to maximize community resources and minimize duplication of services. It is hoped that by sharing information and building awareness of current community services and resources more planned extension of services and resources will occur as well as cooperative creation of new opportunities and resources. Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. in the Gloucester Main Library Community Room and are open to the public.
Participation is open to agencies, organizations, and businesses, with community service functions within Gloucester County, and any citizen of Gloucester County. Each agency represented at a meeting shall be entitled to one vote although attendance by more than one person from any group shall be permitted.
