Here is a video produced by the Department of Human Services in collaboration with Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities at Rutgers University regarding considerations for individuals with disabilities at vaccine sites across New Jersey. Please take a look and use it as a guide to help ensure vaccines are accessible to all New Jerseyans, including individuals with disabilities who you may serve. Together, by ensuring accommodations, we can help ensure a healthier New Jersey for everyone.
|LAWRENCE — United Way of Greater Mercer County (UWGMC) has partnered with GreenPath Financial Wellness, a nonprofit organization, to provide financial coaching and debt management services free of cost to families in Mercer County struggling to make ends meet amid COVID-19. To access the financial coaching service, visit www.uwgmc.org/financialcoaching. Information is also available in Spanish.In response to the unanticipated financial hardship that the health crisis has brought, the collaboration will address a household’s entire financial situation, including paying for essentials, understanding debt repayment options, balancing housing costs with credit card debt, and student loans. Individuals and families will be able to develop a plan with a financial coach free of charge.|
The partnership with Greenpath will expand the free and direct services UWGMC offers to address financial security. The Benefits Access Program connects families to federal benefits like NJ SNAP (food assistance), utility assistance and health insurance. Due to COVID-19, there has been increased demand for this service. The Free Tax Preparation Program not only saves clients on filing fees but works to ensure Mercer County workers take advantage of tax breaks like Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Not collecting this money means more economic hardship for many Mercer County residents, and fewer dollars flowing back to the community.
