With the outbreak of COVID-19, we face an unprecedented challenge in this country. There is a lot we do not know, but there are some elements we can be sure of as they relate to families who are housing unstable, experiencing homelessness, or at risk of losing their homes.
First are the immediate factors for families who are homeless, doubled up, or staying in motels amidst our health crisis:
Sadly 1000+ Individuals, 239+ Families and more than 700+ vulnerable children remain on our emergency shelter waiting list! This number is expected to rapidly skyrocket! As the only emergency shelter for children& their families, we are working collaboratively with federal, state & local officials; as well as our interfaith leaders, educational & business communities to help families in need.
While we are not able to physically come together, now is the time to show solidarity in the protection of our most vulnerable families. We believe one of the best ways to share the promise is by donating food, supplies and funding to amplify our work. You and your family can also reach out to local lawmakers to ensure they pledge and seek legislation, to support vulnerable families, and mitigate the impact on those at risk of homelessness.
We are a community-wide response to family homelessness.
Support our prevention, stabilization & Emergency Shelter efforts by making a tax deductible donation to Family Promise of Monmouth County.
