Rutgers touts success of program for long-term unemployed in NJ

Emerging from the rubble of the Great Recession, the establishment of the New Start Career Network in 2015 provided support to more than 6,000 New Jerseyans experiencing long-term unemployment over its initial six-year period.

That’s according to Carl Van Horn, Rutgers University distinguished professor and director of the school’s Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, which launched the program.

To illustrate the impact of those six years, Van Horn noted that one of the network’s largest benefactors from the beginning was the Philip and Tammy Murphy Family Foundation.
