Congratulations to our artist-in-residence, cartoonist Lauren Weinstein for winning one of two 2021 Stone & DeGuire Contemporary Art Awards, presented by the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. The $25,000 prize will support the creation of a new graphic novel—The Gift of Time—inspired by Lauren's work with our residents at Town Clock CDC, which is curated by coLAB Arts and supported by a grant from the Middlesex County Board of County Commissioners. In The Gift of Time, Lauren fictionalizes oral histories she conducted with Town Clock staff, residents, and board members to provide insights into the lives of survivors and explore how society can break the cycle of abuse, especially during COVID. Through her thoughtful art instruction, Lauren has brought joy, healing, and hope to the lives of survivors. We are honored to have her as part of the Town Clock family.

Town Clock CDC Featured in NJ Monthly!

Town Clock CDC was featured in NJ Monthly! The article discusses how Town Clock CDC was formed.

 

In 2019, Town Clock turned First Reformed’s custodial home into the Barbara Littman House, offering housing to an entire family. It has also raised funds for another expansion project that will add six more apartments and a nutrition training center. It’s a small response to a pervasive problem in the state and the country. 

“We give survivors time to heal—that’s the goal,” Kramer-Mills says. “If they didn’t have this time, where would they be?”
