Family Promise of Monmouth County was 1 of 10 Affiliates nationwide to receive a -two-year $20,000 Help Us Move In (HUMI) Challenge Grant. Investors Bank led our efforts by awarding FPMC’s first $5,000 followed by an equal match from Help Us Move In, Inc., who were then matched by Family Promise-National!
FPMC is charged with engaging the community and matching the funds with another $20,000 each year. This double challenge match is designed to reinforce a self-supporting habit of contributions from the community towards a sustainable program. Within just three months, we have been able to serve four families including
Therefore, we’re leading a campaign entitled Strive for $1205 beyond 12/05. The numbers signify the average cost to maintain a family in their own home which is by far the most cost-effective solution to averting family homeless individuals (not including children). Families not only receive the financial assistance they desperately need but they also participate in case management and financial literacy skills training to ensure their long-term success.
On 12/05 we raised nearly $10,000 (far less than our $25,000 goal). And yet, the need remains. There are currently 229 homelessness individuals on our emergency shelter waitlist. 15% of whom we can prevent from experiencing the trauma of homelessness through the HUMI grant. Family Promise of Monmouth County will serve at least 25-50 unduplicated families per year by leveraging our strategic partnerships to prevent homelessness and stabilize families.
We Strive for $1205 because every child deserves a place to call home!
