Bergen's Promise was happy to participate in the Fort Lee Stigma Free Day Event. The event is designed to raise awareness for all the wonderful resources that exist in the community. Kathy Werheim, our Community Resource Director, and Angeline Osores, our Wellness Educator, represented Bergen's Promise and Bergen ResourceNet.
So many of us belong to populations who are stigmatized and shouldn't be. We were one of over 50 organizations that participated in this event. Resources included LGBTQIA, victims of abuse, those facing health crises, senior citizens, caregivers, people dealing with substance abuse issues, those transitioning from institutions, people experiencing financial difficulties, etc. Make sure to look out for Stigma Free events that are happening in your community!
