Community Action welcomes first-year students to service and community at Princeton.
For four decades Mercer County families have turned to Arm In Arm for essential resources like food and financial support. Formerly known as The Crisis Ministry, we were founded in 1980 by leaders of Nassau Presbyterian Church and Trinity Church in Princeton to help community members who were struggling financially. Today twenty staff members and hundreds of volunteers welcome more than 4,000 families to our food pantries, work with 600 at-risk families to prevent or end homelessness, and offer on-the-job training and job search mentoring. In 2016, we changed our name to Arm In Arm to reflect the positive partnership we have with our community and the collaborative spirit we have in supporting our neighbors in need.
