A Union County Faith-Based Partnership and an Essex County Faith-Based Partnership

CIC was estab­lished by faith based lead­ers in 2004 and part­ners with more than 50 houses of wor­ship rep­re­sent­ing a diver­sity of faiths. Since 2004, GET CONNECTED has been engaged in a strate­gic plan­ning process to iden­tify crit­i­cal com­mu­nity issues to address Union County and Essex County sep­a­rately. GET CONNECTED also pro­vides forums to address com­mu­nity issues, train­ing & aware­ness ses­sion, they mobi­lize resources and learn about com­mu­nity resource con­nec­tion and how to nav­i­gate sys­tems to meet the com­mu­nity needs. 

For each county, GET CONNECTED pro­vides a faith-based infra­struc­ture of sup­port for faith-based and other non­prof­its engag­ing in com­mu­nity out­reach ser­vices and con­nects faith-based to ser­vices to meet the needs of their con­gre­ga­tions and com­mu­ni­ties served. GET CONNECTED seeks to address com­mu­nity prob­lems that tran­scend racial, eco­nomic and cul­tural bound­aries. Our efforts will seek to enhance faith based organization’s abil­ity to solve com­mu­nity prob­lems. Our goal is to be a major force in being more inno­v­a­tive, cre­ative and resource­ful in build­ing orga­ni­za­tional capac­ity to work toward their coalition’s goals. CIC has built its ser­vices based on the coali­tions rec­om­men­da­tions and serves youth, fam­i­lies and the for­merly incar­cer­ated (with a focus on juve­niles and women’s reen­try) col­lab­o­rat­ing with its faith-based part­ners. CIC epit­o­mizes ‘team work makes the dream work’ for our faith-based and com­mu­nity part­ners. The coali­tions in Union and Essex Coun­ties meet quar­terly.
