Community Outreach

Community Outreach

Interfaith Neighbors’ Community Outreach plays an integral part in offering valuable programs to assist area residents in meeting life’s basic necessities. In order to build a stronger relationship, it is important for our communities to know who we are and what we are about.

We do this by working within the communities to build relationships and partnerships.  Our Community Outreach specialist acts as a liaison between the programs offered by Interfaith Neighbors, local community programs and services, and community members.

The agency is a member of various community interest groups such as the Alliance for Healthier Asbury Park, Asbury Park Quality of Life, Greater Asbury Park Community Development Initiative, Monmouth County Re-entry Task Force, Asbury Park School District’s Early Childhood Advisory Council, Prevention Coalition of Monmouth County, Mercy Center’s Victims Community Witness & Advocacy Advisory Council and a host of others.

Interfaith Neighbors has learned from its grantors, its philanthropic peers, and others in the field of community revitalization.   Receiving the valuable input of Westside residents in all planning processes has been ongoing through neighborhood surveys conducted, interviews, and presence at community gatherings and meetings.

Commencing in April 2016, youth, adults and community service organizations began successfully coming together to identify community strengths and weaknesses and discussing strategies for the submittal of the Wells Fargo Regional Foundation Planning Grant. This collaboration has propelled Interfaith Neighbors in strategizing for the development and submittal of a Wells Fargo Regional Foundation Implementation Grant.
