January 22nd, 2015

This week, The Arc of Essex County was awarded a series of grants totaling $22,000 to support the agency’s seven-week Camp Hope summer program.

Generously provided by the Lillian Schenck Foundation and the Township of Irvington CDBG program, the funding will be used for camp fee assistance and transportation to the East Hanover facility.

The Arc of Essex County would like to thank both of these organizations for their continued support of the Camp Hope program.  Camp Hope will open for its 59th season in late-June.  Applications for the 2015 season will be available soon.  For questions relating to Camp Hope or to receive an application, please contact Courtney Kane at (973) 535-1181 ext. 1292 or
