The Elizabethport Presbyterian Center, affectionately known as "The EPort Center" was established in 1965 to address the social and economic needs of the working poor during a time when major local manufacterers were closing their doors and there was social unrest across the nation. Founded by the Presbytery of Elizabeth, their mission is to be a witness to the caring concern of Christ by providing social services, childcare, youth programs, educational support, and ethical and spiritual guidance. EPort Center serves more than 2,500 economically disadvantaged residents annually through a variety of programs.

Zoraya is serving as the Director of Development for Independence: A Family of Services, Inc. wih responsibilities in resource development, marketing, fund raising, and grant writing. Independence: A Family of Services, Inc. (IFS) is a community-based, nonprofit agency that has served at-risk youth and families in Essex County for 40 years. IFS began in 1971 as Independence High School, a nonprofit organization established to provide supportive, alternative education services to high school dropouts in Newark. Over the years, the scope of the agency’s activities expanded as we continued to meet pressing needs within the community, with Independence High School remaining a key component of the organization. In 1992, our name was changed to Independence: A Family of Services, Inc. to reflect the organization’s growth to the multi-service agency we are today.  IFS serves children, teenagers, adults, and their families who reside primarily in Northern New Jersey and who are at substantial risk of dealing with abuse, neglect, or other mental health issues; school failure; involvement or placement with the criminal justice system; out-of-home placement; current or future unemployment or underemployment status; and critical judgment errors.
