“During these especially difficult times, families struggling in Monmouth and Ocean Counties need help more than ever. Fulfill’s Resource Connections Team is here to connect those in need to services that will allow them to put food on the table for their families and save money in other areas to stay afloat,” said Fulfill CEO and President Kim Guadagno, the former Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) – food stamps – can provide families with financial benefits each month that can be used to buy food. There are income requirements as well as other eligibility requirements. Fulfill’s trained staff can help clients navigate the process.
Health coverage protects families against very high expenses if a member gets sick or hurt. Fulfill is a State Navigator Agency. Our trained healthcare experts can help find insurance that meets the needs of our clients and provides financial assistance to pay for the insurance if they qualify. In fact, eight out ten people in New Jersey qualify for financial assistance.
Fulfill also helps clients with income tax refunds. If a client earns under $56,000 annually, the he or she may be eligible for both the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and free tax preparation. To claim the EITC and other tax credits, a tax return needs to be filed. Fulfill’s trained staff offer expert guidance.
