2019 was a big year for Family Promise of Morris County, highlighted by the expansion of the lifesaving services that provide a holistic approach to improving the economic, housing, and health and wellness outcomes of our community’s most vulnerable members. The tremendous impact in 2019 was made possible by your support.
Through our programs, we provide shelter, meals, case management, homelessness prevention and stabilization services to strengthen our community and transforming lives impacted by homelessness and housing insecurity.
Serving over 2,000 clients in Morris County through all programs - a 44% increase including 13,364 face-to-face contacts made through Our Promise and $563,023 was added to the community through benefits assistance through Single Stop.

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! ️
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.
