Community Support  (CS)

Families and individuals who are graduates of our shelter or other local programs, and those precariously housed in the community, receive 24-hour crisis intervention, in-home case management, referrals and linkage to needed services. 

 

Keys to Housing  (KH)

Our housing voucher program consists of up to 40 housing vouchers from local, regional and federal partnerships. The landlord / tenant component provides incentives to landlords and education to tenants. 

 

Abigail House  (AH)

Finding affordable housing in Morris County is the first of many challenges homeless families face in becoming self-sufficient. AH is a collaboration with Christ Church of Rockaway that provides safe and affordable apartments for families impacted by Domestic Violence.

Rapid Rehousing and Diversion (RRH)

RRH helps community members exit the shelter system as quickly as possible and/or avoid it entirely. Services include rental, security deposit, and utility assistance; case management; mediation support; and housing location services. RRH also provides incentives to landlords, including a one-time signing bonus.

Promising Solutions (PS)

In partnership with a variety of Morris County organizations, PS provides safe, affordable, shared housing for single women experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity in the community.

Fact: Since 1960, rent has risen 61% nationwide, while renters’ average incomes have only increased by 5%.
