Our mission is to provide hospitality to the homeless and to keep families together in times of crisis, shepherding them through temporary periods of homelessness by helping them create an achievable vision and develop a strong foundation for self-sufficiency.
In the past year, Family Promise—through the Family Promise Network and New Leaf Programs—provided 11,291 bed nights to working, homeless families. Further, o Our volunteers prepared and served 52,089 free meals to homeless individuals at the Walk-In-Dinner Program at the Bergen County Health and Human Services shelter in Hackensack. o Our Family Case Managers met 1,491 times with families in our shelter programs. o We developed the Fast Track to Success Program to take families who are operating in survival mode, with no vision for their future, and help them create a long-term life plan. o We formalized an After Care Program to provide a monthly rent subsidy and on-going case management and emotional support for the period of one year for families after they leave our transitional housing program to begin independent living.
