Rating: 5 stars  

The Best In New Jersey! If I were ever in trouble, I would trust the loving, compassionate and competent staff of HomeFront to help me. That is the reason why as a volunteer, I became a donor and then ultimately a Board Member. It's impossible to expeience/witness the work at HomeFront without wanting to do more to help HomeFront reach more clients. Their mission to end homelessness is but the tip of the iceberg in terms of the services provided to the families who are the clients of HomeFront.

I have personally witnesses and experienced the results of this organization in many ways. As a volunteer, donor and board member, I appreciated my access to the various levels of staff and management and the opportunity to see the inner workings of an awesome non-profit with inspirational leadership. The dedication and caring of management and staff is top-rated.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the offices, hire more people and solicit more money to expand the programs to help fight homelessness.

HomeFront gives people the opportunity to make a real, tangible difference in the community. They not only help people get back on their feet - they make sure they will stay there, by helping them learn the skills they need to break the cycle of poverty. They provide opportunities for people of all ages to volunteer through their backpack and holiday drives - whole families can make a difference in the life of a child. We are proud to support their work.

Help even more people to get involved - the need is only growing because of the economy.
