YWCA Princeton was proud to participate in the 2nd NJ Family Festival that was hosted by First Lady Tammy Murphy’s Office, Trenton Health Team, Trenton Public Schools, City of Trenton, and The Nicholson Foundation. The festival, that involved over 180 organizations in the planning process, was held on Saturday, December 8, 2018, at Hedgepeth-Williams Middle School in Trenton and attracted hundreds of families.

The purpose of the Family Festival was to provide information and education about maternal and infant health in New Jersey, a focus of First Lady Murphy. First Lady Murphy wants to end all barriers to care – whether it’s transportation, access to healthy food, health insurance, and more – so she pulled together partners and providers from across the community, and she also stated that she wanted to end systemic racism, which prevents children and families from getting the care they need.

YWCA Princeton’s CEO Judy Hutton, Director of Fund Development Sam Bobila and staff from the Latinas Unidas program were at the festival to share information about the program. Click here to see YWCA Princeton’s photo on the First Lady’s Facebook Page.
