New Resource for the Women of Union County

"There's a lot of need in this county — a lot of single women who need assistance and don't know where to turn," she said. "It's about time." 

Those are the words of Jennifer Erdos (via NJ.com), an 11-year Union County employee, announcing the development of the county's new Office on Women that she will be running. This office is the first county government office of its kind anywhere in New Jersey. Created under the Department of Human Services, the Elizabeth office will help promote services focused on women throughout the county. 

From the new office's website:

The mission of the Office on Women is to help ensure that women connect with services and programs that enable them to reach their full potential at every stage of their lives, in education, in employment and business, health, and in the social fabric of Union County, and to raise awareness of the many contributions that women make to life in Union County.
