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.
