  • St Peter's Community Supper

    As we look ahead to Valentine’s Day, please help us spread some love for those in our community facing food insecurity. For over 30 years, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church Outreach Community Suppers have been a constant in helping combat that challenge. CNRC’s next support date is coming up on February 10, and as a reminder has moved back to indoor dining. The supper will be held in St.Peter’s new, accessible Crossroads building, served out of its state-of-the-art kitchen. About 20 volunteers and many donations are needed to make the dinner a success for the guests, so please consider contributing food items or your time by accessing the sign up sheet. Contact Beth Burke at 732.921.3069 with any questions or to sign up without accessing the online list.

  • Become a volunteer advocate for 180 Turning lives around

    You can be the change you want to see in the world by joining 180’s life-saving and life-changing mission today. 180 Turning Lives Around (180), a private non-profit organization in Monmouth County, continues to provide confidential support and advocacy to victims of domestic violence in the aftermath of a highly emotional and traumatic experience with the assistance of its dedicated response team volunteers. 180 will be conducting a 40-hour mandatory training course for new Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT) Victim Advocates. Training will be provided to successful applicants.


    180’s volunteer DVRT Advocates are civilian members of the community who work collaboratively with law enforcement to provide support, information, and resources to victims of domestic violence at police headquarters. Advocates also discuss with victims safety planning and their legal rights in regard to obtaining a Temporary Restraining Order. By providing empathy and a crucial perspective of the situation, these specially-trained advocates help to empower victims to make informed decisions for themselves and their families.


    Basic requirements for volunteers to apply include that they must be eighteen years of age or older, have access to reliable transportation, possess a valid driver’s license, be willing to serve on an on-call shift basis, participate in an interview process, submit to background investigations and fingerprinting, and successfully complete the mandatory training. The police departments and 180 are committed to culturally and socially diverse teams to better serve the community. Bi-lingual capability is helpful. Prior knowledge of domestic violence is not required. The identities of the DVRT volunteers are kept anonymous. For an application or additional information, contact Tina Morgan, Assistant Coordinator, Victim Support Program, at tinam@180nj.org or 732 264-4360, Ext. 4272.
