Congressman Kim Launches Website to Help Connect New Jerseyans with Community Resources
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-03) launched a new online resource for residents of Burlington and Ocean Counties to find organizations to help with everything from affordable housing to disability services.
“I’ve heard from countless neighbors at our town halls, and my office has gotten a number of questions, about where to find community resources for those in need,” said Congressman Kim. “We have a lot of great organizations helping people throughout Burlington and Ocean Counties, and we built this website to serve as a way for people to better connect with those who can help.”
The community resource map, which can be found on the Congressman’s website by clicking here, shows where people looking for help with key issues can find local resources. In addition to the resource map, residents can seek help from the Congressman’s office on issues involving federal agencies by clicking here.
“This map is a work in progress,” said Congressman Kim. “We’re going to keep adding to it as we hear from people and organizations in our community, and will work to make sure we can give our neighbors the resources they need to address the important issues they face.”
Putting the needs of New Jersey first, Congressman Kim held fifteen town halls in 2019 throughout Burlington and Ocean Counties. In addition to his town halls, the Congressman held multiple events focused on bringing a new VA health care facility to Ocean County, brought key stakeholders together to provide updates on the Oyster Creek decommissioning efforts, and held roundtable events on issues impacting the Joint Base. Congressman Kim also held an anti-Semitism forum in Ocean County to highlight the growing threat against the Jewish community and held multiple events to hear from New Jerseyans on education issues and the high cost of prescription drugs.
As a member of the House Committee on Small Business, Congressman Kim launched a local Small Business Advisory Council and held a field hearing of the committee in Burlington County.
Last month, Congressman Kim announced his office had helped Burlington and Ocean County residents with more than 1,500 issues with federal agencies such as Medicare, Social Security or the Department of Veterans Affairs.
