We engage diverse employers seeking qualified talent and match employment opportunities with motivated residents of Paterson. Our cooperative work with faith-based partners, from within and around the Paterson community, is a synergistic effort that ultimately fosters measurable economic growth and advancement for both the employer and employee alike. CJN aims to serve as the uncommon bridge to facilitate a successful union of Paterson's untapped potential with locally established employers in search of well matched, skillful talent.

Who We Help

Underemployed/Unemployed residents of Paterson, referred from our abundant network of churches, ministries and faith-based non-profits, who are job-ready, proficient, and motivated to not only prosper, but beneficially contribute to the employer's enterprise.

Why We Do It

In the spirit of the Good Samaritan, our goal is to love, exemplify compassion, and provide for our disadvantaged neighbors in Paterson. We stand with people who are at a critical juncture, a crossroads, in their life and offer personal direction and encourage accountability through employment.


Our performance as a devoted team is measured by how many Paterson residents we employ through our dynamic job network. As a faith-filled non-profit, we are equally focused on the success of individuals, as well as the success of the companies that furnish employment.
