UWSC and JBCC MERGER:
On July 1, 2014 - United Way of Salem County (UWSC) absorbed the John B. Campbell Center (JBCC) through merger. With a clear understanding of the existing value and potential of the JBCC, United Way prevented the doors of the center from closing to the community. The 40,000 square foot facility is now the headquarters of United Way of Salem County. As both Boards anticipated, UWSC has exponentially expanded programming and services at the center. UWSC is able to provide direct services in early education, childcare, youth services, recreation, health, basic needs, support for families and senior citizens. Most of UWSC's direct programming is funded through grants and fee for service revenue.
During the first year (post merger), UWSC purchased thirty new cardio and strength training machines for our Fitness Center and restructured membership pricing to offer affordable fitness facilities to the Salem County community. We secured a five-year Early Head Start grant and a four-year Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grant that will result in more than $600,000 for early education and health programming. In the second year, UWSC expanded our Early Learning Academy from 5 classrooms to 9 classrooms, more than doubling the number of little learners in our preschool academy.
We look forward to providing a competitive fitness center, high quality early education and child care services, as well as critical community programs and activities. In order to do this, we need your support. To volunteer your time and talents call 856-935-7789 or to give a donation to UWSC click here or call 856-935-2538.
