Good Health, Safe Neighborhoods and Engaged Communities

In our mission to improve lives and communities in South Jersey, we focus on the issues and challenges that affect the health, safety and well-being of our residents. Our work is broad, diverse, and often, multi-faceted in each of these areas.


We are a ‘think-and-do tank’ with boots on the ground throughout South Jersey—conducting evaluations and planning efforts, facilitating initiatives in communities, generating original research and providing objective information essential to the region.
