“It is time to get involved,” Reverend Anthony Jackson with Mt. Zion Missionary Church, 512 John Street, said. “We need to get up and do something.”
Jackson said UNITY will help create programs that are needed and relationships with providers of existing programs.
“I have seen the power of unity work in Orange when Lion’s Park was built,” Jackson said. “Everyone in the community worked together to make it happen. It was beautiful.”
Some of the services the group hopes to develop for the area include professional skills development, help with chemical dependency, faith-based counseling, and financial literacy.
