Project Help was incorporated as a nonprofit in early 2016. Our original mission was to serve the homeless veterans in northern New Jersey. Since our inception, we have been able to expand our services to include such things as financial support (for qualified hardship cases) and legal assistance. Project Help has a vast array of partners who can cover just about every type of need our veterans and families face. We also have a presence in central and southern New Jersey and at times, can make referrals to other states.
One of our major initiatives in 2018 is job/career placement as well as housing. A good many of the veterans we work with are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Others suffer from disabilities that limit them in many ways, especially as it relates to working in the civilian world. Additionally, we are involved in a new initiative to assist veterans with criminal records to help them successfully re-enter into freedom, preparing them while incarcerated.
