Our Executive Director, Michelle Napell, was named as the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber as the October Champion for Business and recognized at their October 3 luncheon. This recognition is given by the Chamber in honor of Michelle’s leadership of JFCS as an important part of the Greater Mercer community.

During her tenure, Michelle’s determination to extend the reach of JFCS has led to the establishment of a satellite office in East Windsor to offer much needed mental health resources. Services at the East Windsor-Hightstown office offer a local resource to those struggling with mental health challenges and a bridge to a broad referral network of high-level services for substance abuse and acute mental health crises.

In January 2020, Michelle’s next and largest vision will come to life – the JFCS Mobile Food Pantry. The JFCS Mobile Food Pantry will bring the resources of the JFCS pantry on the road to locations across Mercer County. At each location, JFCS will park the fully-stocked truck and distribute groceries to those in need.
