 Sign this Petition to Keep COA in Hamilton!
Repeal Ordinance 15-023 NOW and allow non profits to operate rent free in Hamilton Township, Mercer County, NJ. Non Profits should be able to use their precious donations to save lives not pay rent to Hamilton Township. The rent is minimal it should be donated by the township in praise of the volunteer work by so many to address the current drug epidemic we are experiencing. 

Please sign this petition and send a message to our elected officials to do the right thing! Add your signature to the more than 400 who have already signed.

City of Angels NJ, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization that operates at a township-owned building in Groveville known as the Raymond Dwier Center. The group provides free services to help people and families affected by drug addiction.

In 2010, then-Mayor John Bencivengo negotiated an agreement that allowed City of Angels to have free and "unfettered" access to the Dwier Center, but the newly passed Ordinance 15-023 changes the equation by imposing a monthly rental fee, which negatively impacts City of Angel's ability to provide intervention services.

In response to the $195.50 monthly rent that is retroactive to January, City of Angels has downsized its operations at the Dwier Center and has set up operations at a church in Hightstown,To read more about this in the Trentonian, click here.
