read all about it!
The Emergency Disaster Initiative – Hurricane Ida Relief funds granted to Joi’s Angels underscore CFBNJ’s commitment to work together with network partners to meet the urgent needs of this moment and our shared future. In September 2021, Hurricane Ida significantly impacted Joi's Angels. Consider that our physical plant is four blocks from the singular portion of the Garden State Parkway that remained flooded long after the storm passed (northjersey.com). Joi’s Angels suffered considerable damage; it impacted our ability to serve neighbors near and far.
These funds have allowed Joi’s Angels to conduct restoration and renovation to ensure that we more ably and broadly fulfill our first responsibility: to the displaced, challenged, homeless, at-risk youth, and all others who request our help.
Joi Smith Receives Menendez
March 27, 2022: Senator Menendez's Annual Women's History Month Celebration recognized eleven honorees this year. These remarkable women were honored because they have broken barriers, shattered glass ceilings, and written new chapters in our state's long and storied history.
"My mother was a trailblazer in every sense of the word. Her name -Evangelina - harkens back to Eve, the first woman, and Angel, for the angel she was," said the senator.
