CGI – Community Growth Initiatives

Morning Star Community Development Corporation and the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs have partnered to provide economic development, community outreach, re-entry, employment and literacy services. The purpose of our economic development and community outreach program is to continue alleviating the conditions of hunger, homelessness, unemployment, poverty and illiteracy in urban areas across the State of New Jersey. This is accomplished this by providing emergency services to all in need and by designing long-term approaches to achieving social and economic improvement at the grassroots level. The program is primarily focused on providing job training and placement, drug counseling, prison re-entry counseling and social service resources for families in need. We maximize results and achieve our goals through strategic partnerships, volunteer recruitment and by utilizing accessible and user-friendly facilities.

Improving lives through meeting economical, educational and health needs.
