For ten years the IFS East Orange Family Success staff worked in an overcrowded space while helping children and their parents find the necessary resources to overcome daily challenges. Last year, the center’s primary funder requested that IFS relocate to a larger facility better suited to meet the needs of families in the greater East Orange community.
We went to work immediately and after months of searching, IFS found an affordable site, double the size of our old space, which will allow our staff to expand its reach and serve the needs of the community. With this new space, the EOFSC will have the capacity to reach over 800 individuals (or 300 families) ,an increase of approximately 20% – 25% from the current level of service.
A very special thank you to the Orange Orphan Society, the Montclair Fund for Women, Schuman Fund for NJ, Hyde and Watson Foundation, and PSEG Foundation for their support of the East Orange Family Success Center.
