Women Helping Women at CHNJ

Volunteers continue to make an impact with the youth facing homelessness that we serve. Volunteers help us deliver services in areas such as education, employment, financial literacy, physical and mental wellness, and social navigation. We’ve identified these services as key for our youth to transition to stable independent living.

As we enter Women’s History Month, we’re pleased that we have two upcoming seminars from volunteers to benefit not only our youth, but the larger CHNJ community. Our first discussion occurs virtually on Tuesday March 28th at 7:00 PM when we hear from Joan Herman on “If You Think You Can or Can’t, You’re Right!” Joan is the founder of the Change Your Attitude, Change Your Life (CYACYL) brand. She created, hosts, and produces CYACYL’s radio show and podcast, Conversations with Joan, which airs on New York’s AM970 The Answer, streams on iHeartRadio, and is posted on all major podcast platforms.

Or join us on Saturday April 1st at 10:00 AM at our Newark Shelter at 330 Washington St., Newark, NJ to learn the learn the basics of financial literacy from Joanne Spears and Diana Ivanov in “Women “Investing” in Their Financial Freedom”.
