The organization offers over 230 health and social service programs throughout New Jersey designed to meet the needs of our community with compassion. By focusing on integrated care, we can begin to treat the whole person to achieve both mental and physical wellness.

Other distinguished 2023 Rooted In Community Award honorees include Congressman Andy Kim, Camden Community Partnership’s Dana Redd and Dr. Eric Schwartz, VP, Community Health & Transformation, Executive Director, Capital Health – Institute for Urban Care.

The Impact100 award was presented to chapter president Kyle Ruffin as several members looked on. “It was incredibly rewarding to represent our members — all of whom are an integral part of our success,” Ruffin said. “We are truly grateful for Oaks Integrated Care’s recognition of the impact our community of compassionate women is having on our region.”

During the award presentation, Oaks Integrated Food Pantry Operations Coordinator Nicky Huryn told the audience how Impact100 2021 grantee Farmers Against Hunger provides food and produce for the people Oaks serves.
