Mission Statement

To foster self-reliant families and healthy, sustainable communities.

Description

Since 1981, Isles has been working with low-wealth families and neighborhoods, helping people gain the tools to build their assets.

Unlike conventional responses to urban problems, which are single-service programs for housing, environment, or health, Isles offers an array of opportunities that recognize the interdependence of physical, economic, health, and social development strategies that focus on self-reliance and asset creation.

Each year, Isles reaches thousands of central New Jersey residents with opportunities for at-risk youth job training, affordable housing development, financial literacy training, homeownership counseling, community gardening, environmental health and education, community organizing, and regional planning.

Isles broadens its impact by developing easily replicated programs, assisting other community groups and institutions, and advocating for improved public policy.

Would you recommend Isles?

by Yoshinora B. from Trenton, NJ (October 27, 2014)
This agency is dedicated to providing local support to intercity families. The people are genuine and were fun to be around. They accepted me into the fold as if I was a paid employee. I look forward to working with them again soon.
