Family Supports


Urban Edge has a long history of supporting families by helping them gain access to resources that they might otherwise find beyond reach. The Urban Edge staff works closely with the residents living in its properties, so is keenly aware of residents’ needs. Each year, our staff collects donations from community members and other Urban Edge stakeholders and volunteers to provide for families in need. In 2020, 2,457 families received family support resources including back-to-school materials, winter coats, holiday gifts for children, personal protective equipment, Gift-cards and Thanksgiving turkeys.
