Partnerships for Trenton is a premier non-profit organization focused on making Trenton, NJ a better place. Partnerships For Trenton was started in 2014 and seeks to empower people and build community.  We are a Trenton nonprofit that works with partner organizations and other non-profits throughout the state and country to help improve the lives of Trenton residents.

Partnerships For Trenton works by getting people to network and come up with solutions to issues facing Trentonians.  Our Trenton non-profit organization public and private ‘networked approach’ helps us provide meaningful service by finding the right people in the community to solve problems.  Our mission is ‘Empowering People and Building Community’. To achieve this goal, we’ve assembled a team of the most influential and active participants in and around the city of Trenton who are focused on revitalizing it to create an environment where the next generation can achieve.

Partnerships For Trenton is the brainchild of Paul Perez Barroso, a native of the Trenton school system and longtime resident. What started out as a note scribbled on a piece of paper became a premier nonprofit in the Trenton, Mercer County New Jersey area with citizens who depend on our info-services.
