Each year, we provide roughly 12,597 meals and 5,110 bed-nights for families in need. Referral calls from families seeking temporary housing continue to increase. Unfortunately, our capacity falls far short of the demand.
Family Promise of Monmouth County relies on more than 1200 volunteers to provide the services necessary to sustain families in crisis. While families are living in the network, volunteers have opportunities to provide assistance 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Volunteers who directly serve guests reduce program expenses through the gift of their time and or donations. They share meals and sometimes stay overnight. Volunteers plan and manage recreational activities, such as birthday parties, Holiday celebrations and sporting events. They tutor school age children.

Family Promise of Monmouth County (FPMC) held its ninth annual Cardboard Box City fundraising event in Tinton Falls, NJ on Friday, October 5th. Hundreds of Monmouth County students, youth groups, faith-based organizations and scouting groups of all denominations descended on the grounds of Monmouth Church of Christ to simulate a night of homelessness while raising awareness and money to support children and families currently experiencing homelessness in Monmouth County.
This Saturday, we were thrilled to celebrate the service of our committed Volunteers and to meet the new Executive Director Christine Carter-Love! Now, more than ever, we are committed in our resolve to provide innovative solutions to end family homelessness.We are eternally grateful to our champion and Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger, Ph.D and forever indebted to our Founder Linda Stahl for her vision!
