Monmouth Park Charity Fund, in partnership with New Jersey Natural Gas, is thrilled to announce that this year two grants were awarded through their Accomplish More Together grant program. This unique funding opportunity invites charities who provide services to residents of Monmouth County, to partner on service projects/programs that build bridges of collaboration that invite agencies to work together and find new solutions to challenges that increase services to our families and friends. Grant allocations are $5,000 each.
180 Turning Lives Around and The ARC of Monmouth
180 Turning Lives Around will develop and administer a domestic and sexual violence educational curriculum, in the form of virtual presentations along with handout materials (which will also be available digitally), for clients and staff members of The Arc of Monmouth County. These presentations and materials will be tailored specifically for the intellectually and developmentally disabled population, and for the staff who serve them.
