Food Insecurity Abolishment

Through our partnership with FullCart, local food banks, and grocers, we are able to provide nutrient-dense food to our members, at no cost to them. No one should be forced to lose access to feeding themselves, and their families healthy meals.

Population(s) Served
LGBTQ people

Through our partnership with BetterHelp, we are able to offer you accessible, affordable and confidential online counseling and therapy service.

Once enrolled, you will be matched with a counselor that fits your specific objectives and needs. Together, you will work with them to create, work towards and attain individualized and personal goals. Your counselor will stay with you for as long as you are accessing BetterHelp to achieve the best results for you.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To substantially reduce and eliminate the HIV crisis among the LGBTQ+ community in New Jersey. To address and empower homeless LGBTQ+ community members in New Jersey. To address and feed LGBTQ+ community members facing food insecurity in New Jersey.

One of Us partners with major organizations like Amazon, BetterHelp, Wegmans, and Stop and Shop to address the issues facing the LGBTQ+ community. Our corporate sponsors provide us with the necessary funding to feed, house, and provide medical assistance to the most vulnerable in our community.

We host monthly HIV pop-up testing sites, with referrals to clinics/doctors for HIV+ patients. We provide nutrient-dense food and access to food stores to our members facing food insecurity. We offer free access to mental health resources for all our members.
