ES Charity Foundation, Inc. Notice.....
As members of the Eastern Star, we are called upon to give to our Sisters and Brothers, advice in their troubles, sympathy in their sorrows, and aid in their misfortunes. The Eastern Star Charity Foundation of New Jersey, besides providing aid in the form of emergent and monthly assistance, educational loans, scholarships, and life skills grants, seeks to offer advice to our members through our new Community Resource Guide. This guide lists various state and county agencies that can provide guidance and assistance to individuals facing a variety of situations. Phone numbers, websites and descriptions of services are provided. This guide is meant to help a member obtain services that might prevent a situation from becoming a crisis, utilizing resources that already exist in their community. We hope this Resource Guide will become another means for the Eastern Star Charity Foundation to fulfill its mission to serve our members in need. A copy of this guide is available on njoes.com, just follow the link on the Charity Foundation page.
