Promote Compassionate Social Policy

Kate recognizes our collective responsibility to care for the most vulnerable among us.

Under her leadership as Freeholder, the NJ Coalition to End Homelessness recognized Burlington County as one of only three counties in the state to meet its legal and ethical obligations to its homeless population by developing comprehensive Code Blue plans. Kate hosted the county’s first Easter Egg Hunt & Trunk or Treat events designed specifically for children with special needs.

Last, but not least, Kate oversaw a County Office on Aging that distributed more than 167,000 meals through its Meals on Wheels program to less fortunate seniors. In Congress, she will advocate for federal funding for local programs like this to ensure those in need receive proper care and services with dignity.
