Every ECNJ event raises donations that go directly to the Hope for Veterans program, The Valerie Fund, and the Adopt A Single Mom Project non-profit organizations.
The Hope for Veterans programs at Community Hope is the largest nonprofit serving homeless veterans and families in and around New Jersey. The program directly helps veterans and their families, overcome mental illness, addiction, homelessness and poverty by providing housing and support services.
The Valerie Fund provides comprehensive care to children with cancer and blood disorders and their families in the centers at seven pediatric hospitals in NJ, NY and metro Philadelphia. The Valerie Fund also offer support beyond the centers because they believe that the most effective way to heal the children is to treat them in mind, body and spirit. That support starts the minute the child steps into one of the centers and continues well after they walk out the door.
Their mission is to create a movement providing direct support to empower working single moms of NEPA and beyond filling the gaps with a network of sustainable resources and support to enhance their quality of life so they can be the best version of themselves to thrive as moms and women of the community.
