Please email, call or better yet, stop in and say hi to your Lawrence Community Center staff.
As the Director, I have the privilege of working alongside a talented team to ensure that we are serving the community the best we can with social services and creating a safe, welcoming, positive place for those that want to be in community. My role also includes leading our Camp Mercer program. Each summer I look forward to growing alongside the youth in our community. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family and am an avid Philadelphia sports fan!
I assist the community with financial assistance for back rent and security deposits, submit applications for energy assistance and provide emergency food, clothing or personal care items. These are the main services I assist with, however, the community can come to me with other needs. If we’re unable to assist with a particular need I will refer that person to another program or agency to ensure their need is met.
As a resident of Lawrence Township for years, I have always tried to focus on the needs of the community. I am also the food pantry manager, where I see to it that the community receives well-balanced and nourishing food twice a month.
