Rhona Fischer Family Assistance Program

The Rhona Fischer Family Assistance Program (FAP) supports South Jersey residents who need help feeding their families, making ends meet, or overcoming domestic violence. With unparalleled compassion and care, our dedicated staff helps clients find effective solutions by providing critical support and resources. We strive to empower individuals and families to overcome challenging circumstances and become self-sufficient.


Our counselors and social workers help to provide the tools and resources to help families manage finances, become economically self-sufficient, and regain control over their lives. They make every effort to connect clients with programs and services available in the community, including healthcare, housing, nutrition assistance, legal and financial services, and job training programs.


Project SARAH (Stop Abusive Relationships at Home) provides multi-faceted services, including resource referrals, case management, support groups, safety planning, and more to help domestic violence survivors and their families. Tell Me More
