Helping People Build A Future

NJAC focuses on the future. We help people change their lives for the better by providing the respect and resources necessary for them to rewrite the story of their lives in more positive and productive ways.

We’re on a mission to end poverty and create greater social justice.

NJAC offers support and guidance during difficult times of change and uncertainty. We believe that building strong communities means promoting positive and healthy relationships among friends, families, and neighbors. We advocate for our clients whenever needed.

What We Do

NJAC envisions a world of social equity and the development of just laws that are impartially applied to all people. NJAC believes that though many people are negatively impacted by social inequities, they have the capacity to make changes in their lives, given the tools and support needed.
