Childcare in New Jersey

Union Township Community Action Organization, Inc. (UTCAO) is a private non-profit social service organization and early childhood education in Vauxhall, New Jersey founded in October 1967 by a group of concerned citizens from many walks of life. The purpose of the organization is to identify, assess, and resolve some of the social ills faced by many of the community residents. This is being accomplished through educating, partaking in positive employment opportunities, and providing a wide range of social services and programs responsive to those needs. Our goals are to continue to be an important and viable asset to the citizens of the community with the continued support and involvement of business, industry, private and public sectors, and the community at large.
