Bentley Community Services is a designated 501 (c) 3 charitable organization that specifically addresses the needs of hardworking families that do not qualify for assistance but need help due to the unstable economy. We are a healthy food provider and more to struggling, working families. With numerous job lay-offs, corporations downsizing, businesses closing, people working fewer hours, earning less pay, higher costs of living, healthcare programs diminishing, an unforeseen emergency or medical expenses, so many working families are struggling. Pensions are ended and paychecks stop coming in. They do not qualify for assistance other than unemployment and they cut back on food and basic needs in order to afford their monthly bills.
By Bentley Community Services providing healthy groceries, fresh vegetables and fruits, basic needs, toiletries, household products, adult education they request and resources, the money they save on these crucial staples enables them to pay their monthly bills and avoid foreclosures and evictions. Participant families are able to feed their children, put gas in the car and pay monthly expenses. We provide for working families in our local surrounding communities in Montgomery Township, Hillsborough and Princeton as well as throughout Somerset, Hunterdon, Middlesex and Mercer counties. We provide a community where people can be responsible and accountable for meeting their basic needs and equip them with tools to overcome financial difficulty.
