Welcome to the People for People of Gloucester County web site. People for People’s goal is to help the normally self-sufficient in finding help and services for families and individuals of all ages when faced with a crisis in their lives such as loss of job, reduction in hours, illness or death in the family, or other family emergencies. Those we assist are the ones that “FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS” you know, the family that has a little too much to qualify for traditional government and charitable assistance, but not enough to get completely by without a little help. We are sure you know many people like this, the working needy needing a hand up and not a hand out.
People for People of Gloucester County serves as advocates and case managers for those seeking assistance, many for the first time in their lives, by helping them navigate through the maze of the help provider community. We try to assist those seeking help to find the resources they need with items such as food, clothing, medicines, utilities, heating fuel, medical equipment, and other life essentials. Please read our FAQ section under “About Us” as well as the section “Seeking Assistance.”
In 2011 People for People was honored to be selected by the Pascale Sykes Foundation to be the lead agency of a new initiative called The Heart of Gloucester County. Through this initiative several agencies have come together as a team to help provide two adult caregiver families the tools and assistance to help them onto the path of self-sufficiency.
