THE LINDA & RUDY Slucker NCJW/Essex Center for Women received a $9,678 block grant from the Essex County Department of Economic Development, Training and Employment, Division of Housing and Community Development. The grant will go toward expanding the programs offered by the NCJW/Essex Center for Women, which has helped thousands of women with computer skills, job searches, and personal guidance.
“We are very excited about the opportunities that this grant will give to the Center for Women and the various programs that fall under its umbrella,” said Sue Wasserman, director of community services for NCJW/Essex.
