Who We Are

We are professionals that bring a host of talents and key relationships to the table.  Due to our commitment to efficiency and quality, we have developed a reputation with federal, state and local government partners and private sector investors, as a results oriented organization that always gets the job done. This has allowed us to work together to plan strategically and implement initiatives that are cost effective, maximize impact and are sustainable in the long term.

One of the greatest providers of affordable housing in our city has been the Garden State Episcopal Community Development Corporation. Tonight, I would like to thank [GSECDC] for their continued commitment to the people of Jersey City.
