Review for Family Promise of Bergen County, Ridgewood, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

28 years ago I heard about this organization and decided to help. Since then, I ran a shelter for homeless families for 22 years and when that closed, I moved on to office work. This organization has sheltered more than 500 families in those years, has moved most of them into independent living with the assistance of a very small staff and a tiny budget. Volunteers have staffed the shelters, handled the office work and demonstrated the power of goodness and generosity of the "haves" toward their less fortunate brothers and sisters! As an example of that, several ex-clients have returned to serve the poor who followed them into the program!
