Basic Needs Resources

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​At Rowan College of South Jersey, we understand that access to basic needs is vital to academic success.  Focusing on classwork may be challenging without enough food to eat, safe shelter, and other essentials.

Below is a list of community resources that may help, sorted by type and then by county. Connecting with community resources can be overwhelming. For direct assistance connecting with the resources below (and more), email [email protected]​ to set up an appointment (virtual or in-person) with someone who can help.
