Mission Statement

Bentley Community Services, Inc. is dedicated to help those families in the Central New Jersey region of communities who are struggling financially. BCS provides support and encouragement in a culture and environment of accountability and self-help to place families on the path to financial stability and security.

Description

Bentley Community Services, Inc., located at 4064 Route 1 North, Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, specifically addresses the needs of struggling, working families that do not receive assistance but need help due to the lingering unstable economy. The "working poor" are the most underserved population in America. We are a unique, participant based healthy food pantry and more. With numerous job lay-offs, individuals working fewer hours and earning less pay, the higher costs of living, diminishing healthcare, an unforeseen emergency or medical expenses, so many working families are struggling. Many families cut back on food and basic needs in order to afford their monthly bills and expenses. By Bentley Community Services providing healthy groceries, fresh vegetables and fruits, basic needs, toiletries, household products, adult education and resources, the money they save on these crucial staples enables BCS families to pursue goals that move them away from the bankruptcies, evictions and foreclosures that threaten them, and on to financial stability. They are able to pay their monthly bills and expenses, pay down debt and feed their families healthy food.

Bentley Community Services (BCS) empowers participants through accountability and setting of goals, fostering their capacity to give back through volunteerism in an environment of community. Typical outcomes for families of BCS’ program include decreasing/eliminating consumer debt, catching up with mortgage or car payments, meeting medical bills, paying toward student loans, or helping pay for vocational training or tuition for college (which, research shows, is the most effective way out of poverty).

BCS welcomes those who need a "hand up" rather than a "hand out" by meeting their immediate needs while helping them to work towards restoring self-sufficiency. BCS provides support and encouragement in a culture and environment of accountability and self-help to place families on the path to financial stability and security.
