For Richard Stagliano, making a difference and giving back are the cornerstones of his approach to creating Impact. "It means a tremendous amount to me to work toward improving lives in our community," he shares. "It's a commitment in my professional and personal life."
This commitment is clear in the work that Richard has led for more than 30 years at Center For Family Services (CFS), a United Way Impact Partner, where he is president and CEO. The nonprofit provides services to youth and families, randing from educational programs to housing assistance.
A true champion of collaboration, Richard shares how CFS and UWGPSNJ's partnership helps transform lives throughout southern New Jersey.
United Way:Why is the work of CFS so important for the community?
Richard Stagliano: To foster stronger communities it is important to empower individuals and families to build a better life and achieve self-sufficiency. That's the work that we're doing at CFS. A very important part of this work is supporting the education of our children through efforts such as Born to Read, an initiative co-directed by CFS and United Way, that is working to increase early literacy levels among Camden City and County preschoolers. We also serve individuals and families through a wide range of health and human services to be a force for positive change.
