““The young adults who will participate in the new FreePair Paterson program have been unable to finish high school for reasons that were often out of their control. They have been victims of poverty, crime, abuse and homelessness, “ emphasizes Vicky Hernandez, NJCDC’s Chief Program Officer. “The Impact 100 grant will give these young adults a second chance to become employable, self- sufficient adults.”
