PRAC of Southern New Jersey hopes to identify and address the needs of low to moderate income community members by developing strategies and programs that facilitate social, economic growth, self-stainability along with promoting culture awareness and events.


Organized in 1971 by a group of Salem County Agricultural Workers for the purpose of advancing, promoting and enhancing social, economic, cultural and educational opportunities for Hispanic citizens.

PRAC has been recognized as a “Vital Link” for the Hispanic communities of Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem Counties.

The organization has developed a Community Center which serves as a focal point for community activities. The organization has now expanded its services to all members of the community.
