To assist displaced homemakers to become emotionally and economically self-sufficient through life-skills training, education or vocational training, advocacy and supportive services.
To provide services to displaced homemakers who are experiencing the three greatest stressors in life — divorce, death of a spouse and loss of employment/unemployment — to help them reach a new beginning of self-worth and self-sufficiency.
Gloucester County College (now Rowan College at Gloucester County) began to host the Center for People in Transition (PIT) in 1981 to assist women returning to school. Since that time the Center has expanded its mission and has become a semi-independent social service agency dedicated to assisting displaced homemakers in becoming self-sufficient.ADVISORY BOARD
