PARSIPPANY — Parsippany-based law firm Inglesino, Webster, Wyciskala & Taylor donated $10,000 to Community Access Unlimited for general support of the agency’s programs, services and members. Partner John Inglesino is Parsippany-Troy Hills Township Attorney.

According to Income Tax returns filed by Community Access Unlimited, the Executive Director, Sidney Blanchard, earned more than $278,000 in compensation and benefits and the Associate Director earned more than $200,000 in 2013.  The organization had a revenue of $48,569,766.000 in contributions and grants during the same period.

In February Community Access Unlimited (CAU) has received a total of $27.5 million line of credit from Valley National Bancorp. Of that, $20 million will help finance CAU’s growth and $7.5 million is for a owner-occupied construction-to-permanent mortgage for the agency’s new office.

The agency owns more than 250 units of affordable housing throughout Union County, comprising apartments, condos, single-family homes, duplexes and townhouses, all privately financed. Many are mixed-use properties, providing an additional revenue stream to support and enhance CAU’s service capacity.

CAU is a statewide Elizabeth-based nonprofit providing support programs and services to adults with disabilities as well as youth served under the Department of Children and Families (DCF) to enable them to live independently in the community, in areas including housing, vocational skills and life-skills training, education, advocacy and recreation, according to a press release from the law firm.

Valley National was honored by CAU at the agency’s 2015 Gala with the Ira Geller Award for the Financial Literacy Program the bank runs at the agency for its members. The award recognizes an individual or organization that has a significant commitment to CAU.

“We want to support the wonderful things Community Access and its people are doing,” said Lisa Taylor, a partner in the firm. “The name says it all. It’s about serving the community, helping people live within the community who might not be able to otherwise, about providing access to a quality of life they might not have access to otherwise, and about unlimited opportunities.”
