Conceived and founded in the wake of a 2010 fire that left over one hundred families homeless, the Family Assistance Resource Center provides emergency clothing, footwear, toiletries and other essential items to assist victims of fire, flooding, storm damage and other disasters in their time of need. 

Executive Director Roger Hinton puts it this way, “Our mission is to offer the vital support that will strengthen and empower those we serve, to recover from their loss and to live sustainable  and independent lives."

FARC offers programs and services that address the critical needs of families and individuals in crisis. Through these programs, clients have access to clothing, footwear, furniture, household goods, bed and bath linens, food, and housing resources assistance. We serve fire and natural disaster victims, senior citizens,  abused women, young mothers, families transitioning from homelessness, veterans, those re-entering society, and students.

FARC recognizes that not all families in need are homeless. Our experience in working in the communities throughout New Jersey, is that families and single employed individuals, are struggling to make ends meet and to remain afloat as the economy slowly recovers. These families, need the assistance of food, clothing, replacement furniture and other basic living necessities.
