Our Team

WorkWell reflects the commitment of the members of a church in Lawrenceville, New Jersey to help returning citizens navigate the difficult path to life beyond bars.

WorkWell equips men and women with workplace and life skills needed for sustained employment and community engagement. Rather than operating solo, duplicating existing resources and services, the founders saw the wisdom of partnering with various agencies, nonprofits, and other groups, tapping into their collective expertise to achieve shared goals. Our own team is mostly volunteers. For further information, email info@workwellpartnership.org.
