In 2021 Allies in Caring has provided Home-Based Services to 218 families with kids with emotional and behavioral problems. Our purpose is to stimulate personal skills, prevent unnecessary internments, avoid situations of isolation and loneliness, support family organization, avoid deterioration of living conditions and provide young people with the possibility of remaining in their usual environment.

Hammonton Health Coaliton
Allies in Caring co-initiated the Hammonton Health Coalition (HHC). The Coalition is an initiative led by 13 cross-sector organizations in South Jersey. Its mission is to help residents improve their mental and physical health by implementing creative programs that recognize and take advantage of Hammonton’s unique social, economic, and natural resources.
The connectors of the Hammonton Health Coalition are bi-lingual, bi-cultural Latinx community members who find information about services and opportunities offered by local organizations and share them with the community members.
In 2021 in collaboration with other organizations, the connectors connected residents to resources and information during the COVID-19 pandemic and helped more than 150 community members register to get the COVID-19 vaccine. In addition, they continue to coordinate food donations and distributions to families in need. To learn more about the connectors work, please visit their Facebook Page.
Our services are culturally-responsive and linguistically appropriate
The majority of the population we serve seeks Spanish and ASL language accessible services. They are mostly Latinos, Deaf individuals, and/or those with autism. All represent different genders, ethnicities, races, ages, documented status, and socio-economic levels.
We involve them in the decision-making process of our programing by inviting them to participate in intentional conversations and to co-create programs and opportunities with the Hammonton Health Coalition (a co-initiated group to respond to the complex needs of those in the margins) as well as the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Coalition of South Jersey (a co-initiated group supporting their own needs).
Too many members of our deaf and hard of hearing community struggle to connect with others and get the information they need about opportunities and services vital to their quality of life. The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Coalition of South Jersey seeks to promote inclusive practices that support the health and well-being of individuals with disabilities in the communities where they live.
