AECDC Partners with Middlesex County Youth Corps

We owe many thanks for our relationship with the Middlesex County Youth Corps.  Recently,  staff and members of the Youth Corps have assisted the Anshe Emeth Community Development Corporation (AECDC)  by performing numerous routine and special tasks essential to our operation, freeing up AECDC staff time and saving funds that can then be used to purchase diapers, car seats, medical equipment, etc. for our clients.

The Youth Corps is sponsored by the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development as well as the New Brunswick Board of Education/Adult Learning Center.  This program provides education and work experience for youth, ages 16 to 21 who, for whatever reason, have dropped out of high school.  For a three month period, the members attend classes and go to various work sites to assist nonprofit organizations with their tasks.

AECDC Saves Clients $62,324

Between January 1 and March 31, 2014, the AECDC  served 255 clients in all programs, responding to 587 requests for service (many clients have more than one need).  We calculated the value of the services provided and determined that we saved clients a total of $62,324, for an average of $244 per client and $106 per service provided.  Thus, the essential services we provide to our clients provide significant economic relief to these low income individuals. Importantly, the AECDC delivered these services cost effectively; the $62,324 in savings was more than 2.5 times larger than the $25,000 costs incurred by the AECDC during the same time period.  The table below shows the numbers served and savings generated for each of the AECDC programs.
