Town Clock CDC holds an annual fundraising & advocacy event, called Being Brave. It is inspirational and is designed to honor and support women who bravely pursue safety, wholeness, and affordable housing. 

This year’s event focused on the Community Awardees: The Outstanding Advocate Award - Angel Maria Cruz of Liberating Women; The Outstanding Volunteer Award: Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple - being accepted by Rabbi Philip Bazeley; and The Outstanding Provider Award: Susan Giordano, Program Director of the Rutgers Homeless & Indigent Population Health Outreach Project (HIPHOP) at the Office of Community Health. Other elements included music performed by local artists, raffle baskets, and appearances of notable individuals, including the #TheManStand speaker Lonnie Allgood, who is a retired NFL wide-receiver and played for the Buffalo Bills & the Cincinnati Bengals.


All proceeds help to support the programming offered to our eleven resident survivor families living at Dina's Dwellings and the Barbara Littman House.
