Gloucester County Offers Assistance To The Unemployed

By: Follow South Jersey Staff

SEWELL, N.J. — The Gloucester County Department of Economic Development has developed a survey for individuals that are currently unemployed.

Completing the brief 90-second questionnaire will provide the American Job Center of Gloucester County with essential information needed to continue to create programs that will help those who have lost their jobs due to COVID-19 or other reasons get back on their feet. 

“We commend all our residents for their determination and persistence during these trying times,” Director Robert M. Damminger said. “We understand that disruptions to your daily lives have become routine; however, when they affect your job and families, it is important to know where to turn for assistance.” 

Commissioner Heather Simmons said programs offered by the American Job Center of Gloucester County can help stabilize the local economy.

“Providing support, resources, re-employment and training grant opportunities are a key priority for us to rebuild a strong stable workforce which will help drive the economic recovery,” Simmons said. “The Department of Economic Development and the American Job enter is here to support our residents through this difficult time.” 

Gloucester County residents who are currently unemployed are asked to take the survey today:
