Mission Statement

Our mission is to better our communities by providing 360 degrees of support to those re-entering society, at-risk youth and their families thus helping them to find A Better Way to live. We stress empowerment by education and exposure to job skills, life skills and volunteerism thereby creating an environment of support and a history of success. Individuals who participate in our programs and master these strategies have had a positive impact on society and have become role models for their families and the communities in which they live.

Description

We are A Better Way: An organization which specializes in helping community members find a better way to live. A Better Way was created by law enforcement officers and mental health professionals who noticed that youth at-risk for incarceration, previously incarcerated individuals, and their families have the least amount of job training and lowest rate of employment. Individuals and families who would otherwise be a burden on the taxpayer can find resources and support from A Better Way. Our work in transitioning clients and their families into self-sufficiency saves taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. A Better Way is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization located in Mercer County, NJ.
