The Mercer County Commission on the Status of Women was established in 1976 to support Mercer County with the development of policies and programs concerning women. The commission acts as a liaison among existing community organizations, associations, and groups working to improve the status of women in Mercer County. The commission also advises the Mercer County Executive and Board of Chosen Freeholders about the areas of County government that affect women.
The commission’s goals are:
- To study the social, educational, and financial status of women in their varied roles in the community.
- To identify gaps in services and the unmet needs that hamper women from full participation as citizens of the community and create public and private resources to fill those needs and gaps.
- To improve access to public and private services for women in the Mercer County community by distributing information regarding resources, organizations, and legal rights.
- To introduce, conduct, and support projects that enhance the status of women in Mercer County.
