Michelle Peoples is an inaugural member of Impact 100 Jersey Coast, honored to have been a part of the Grants Committee from Day One.  She was thrilled to learn about Impact 100 groups, in awe at the remarkable transformational changes they have made on their local communities, eager to have an opportunity to learn about the most hard-pressed needs in Monmouth Country and aid the amazing community partners who strive to provide the critical services to meet these needs.
