Through our programs, we provide shelter, diversion, housing, case management, education, homelessness prevention and stabilization services, and more to strengthen our community and transform lives impacted by homelessness and housing insecurity.
We served 2,273 individuals through all programs, including 8,526 face-to-face contacts and 7,452 linkages and referrals made through our Outreach Programs and 42 households moved into permanent housing through our Housing Programs.
New strategic partnerships were created throughout the community, expanding the scope of our services, including the ability to quickly and stably house families experiencing housing instability.
To meet increased demand, we expanded our existing rapid rehousing and shelter diversion programming to quickly and stably house families experiencing homelessness while ensuring others avoid the shelter system entirely. 60 individuals were served through our Rapid Rehousing and Diversion Program.
GATHERING & DISTRIBUTING RESOURCES
The heart and soul of our mission is achieved through our community’s support. With it, we mobilized more than 1,600 volunteers and 80 congregations to serve over 2,000 individuals.

No one ever thinks homelessness can happen to them. I certainly didn’t! But it can happen in the blink of an eye. No one is immune to this. We were financially secure and housed for years. It happens in an instant.
I may have lost a lot, but I gained an entire network of extended family members. I will spend the rest of my life making sure the entire world (or at least the Morris County-area) knows the magnitude of greatness that this organization is and provides.
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! ️
