The Daily Journal, a newspaper covering Cumberland County, New Jersey, recently featured the South Jersey Families Re-Connected Coalition
in an article titled “Local agencies unite for
families.” CHS leads the coalition, which is funded by the Pascale Sykes Family Foundation. The foundation supports innovative,
flexible, holistic, long-range programs that promote the integrity, independence, and well-being of the intergenerational family unit.
Drawing on the strengths of its five members, the coalition provides an array of services to Cumberland families. CHS conducts the intake assessment, manages the cases, monitors and
assesses each family's progress, and provides instruction in adult basic skills and English as a second language. The Center for Family Services provides guidance on parenting, while the Kingdom Covenant
Christian Center's Seeds for Success program provides financial literacy instruction. Casa PRAC provides tutoring for school-aged children, and the Vineland Police Chaplain Program counsels families in crisis.
For over 40 years, CHS has helped improved the quality of and access to health, social, educational, and vocational services in the U.S. and abroad. It has been active in southern New Jersey since 1988,
providing services to underserved populations from offices in Bridgeton and Vineland.
CHS New Jersey’s services include civic education, English literacy instruction, adult basic skills training; diabetes management,
case management and referral for women living with HIV/AIDS, and
vocational rehabilitation for migrant and seasonal farmworkers with disabilities.
