Lawrenceville Cooperative Ministry, other nonprofits working together under one roof in ‘groundbreaking’ partnership
The goal is to unite as one voice to aid community members who are struggling.
“It’s very good that we were able to connect together,” Josephs said. “We’re trying to become like a one-stop shop, where it’s just one place where everyone can come to get certain services. When people come to the Co-op, they’re going to go, ‘oh, let me see what’s over there’ and they can stop by the (other organizations) and get the help that they need.”
