First Lady Mary Pat Christie has named Women’s Opportunity Center (WOC) Director, Cathi Rendfrey as the latest New Jersey Hero during a visit to the Center.
“I’m so inspired by the work Cathi is doing to help put women and their families back on their feet again,” said Mrs. Christie. “Giving women the tools they need to be successful in the job market is not only empowering but it brings a sense of accomplishment and pride in themselves and their future.”
Since its inception in 1991, the WOC has served more than 3,000 women in Burlington and Camden counties. Approximately 200-250 clients are assisted annually. New Jersey Heroes is an initiative of First Lady Mary Pat Christie to showcase the positive ways people and organizations are impacting New Jersey in their own unique ways. Every month, a new local hero will be designated from nominations submitted by residents through the First Lady’s website.
