Impact Stories

In Nov. 2021 after ten years of our evolving mission and impact, we changed our name to Gathering Ground. You may still find reference to our old name Creative New Jersey in posts created prior to Nov. 2021.

Icons for social service, community development, partnership

Community members, entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders connect during the Atlantic City Call to Collaboration to form the Ducktown Neighborhood Group. They subsequently secured funding for the development of the area’s first Neighborhood Revitalization Plan.

“Before Hammonton’s Call to Collaboration, I did not know that I was surrounded by people who, despite our differences, care about the same issues: the safety of our town, the well-being of our families, the opportunity to contribute to our community, etc. Knowing that there were other like-minded people in my community gave me the courage to act.”

– Ivette Guillermo-McGahee – Executive Director, Allies in Caring (Hammonton)
