Front Line Fund Provides Assistance to Military Families in Northern NJ
United Way of Northern New Jersey can help with medical and and social needs
The stresses on the families of military members serving on the front lines can be great. Juggling the running of a home and family while dealing the emotional aspects of a deployment can be a struggle for the family members left at home. When the soldier returns to civilian life, re-adjustment can be difficult.
The United Way of Northern New Jersey has announced the Front Line Fund, launched in 2010, continues to provide a safety net of support for these families. The fund can help with a range of needs, including child care or respite needs, emergency home repairs, housing costs and utility assistance, mental health services, medical costs and more.
Family members, active duty service members, and post 9/11 veterans may apply for assistance if they live or work in the towns of Caldwell, Cedar Grove, Essex Fells, Fairfield, Glen Ridge, Livingston, Montclair, North Caldwell, Roseland, Verona and West Caldwell, or in the counties of Morris, Somerset, Warren or Sussex.
Family Service of Morris County is handling the distribution of the United Way Front Line Fund to qualifying individuals. To learn more or to apply for assistance, contact Sylvia Lippe at sLippe@fsmc.org or call 973.538.5260.
