Joint Orange-Chatham Community Action

Several unique resources and assistance programs are administered by the Orange-Chatham Community Action organization (known as JOCCA). They are focused on long term solutions to poverty, while at the same time helping with some immediate, short-term needs. Some of the services provided include government benefit application assistance, childcare, and referrals to job training. They also have information on local non-profit programs or to other charity agencies or churches in the region. Examples of the basic needs addressed are the free senior congregate meal program, short term shelter, food, and grants for paying utility bills.
