Third Annual Hearts of Hope breakfast was held at the Ocean Place Hilton in Long Branch, NJ. This year was unique in that four local charities joined forces to better serve youth in our community with behavioral health programs. The four organizations were: Collier Youth Services, The YMCA of Greater Monmouth County, Family Promise of Monmouth County, HFCF and Family and Children Services.
We are proud to announce and present our 6th Annual Dinner and Fundraiser, The Promise of Spring on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, at the Ocean Place Hotel in Long Branch. This year’s Hope Award recipient is Marybeth Walz, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Hope for Children Foundation. We invite you to join us for cocktails, dining, dancing, amazing auction items, and an evening to remember.
Jill Horner speaks with Christine Love, Executive Director from Family Promise of Monmouth County, about Homelessness Prevention.
Family Promise does more than provide a roof over families’ heads. Its 90-day program of intensive case management connected Winkey-Lebron and Johnson with the Sheraton. They landed jobs in the housekeeping department and that has opened the door for others.
“Since Nick and Aniyyah are such great employees, the Sheraton had no issues with accepting our other referrals,” Love said. “They’re not our only success story, but they make me proud because they are younger, they listened and they’ve grown so much. They’re well on their way.”
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.
On Saturday, September 28th, youth from more than 15 New Jersey elementary, high schools, colleges, and universities descended upon the grounds of Fort Monmouth to raise funds and awareness of family homelessness at Family Promise of Monmouth County’s 10th Annual Cardboard Box City sleep-out event.
For the month of October, each time a reusable Community Bag is purchased at the Stop & Shop located at 100 State Route 36 in Keyport or ACME located at 616 Newman Springs Rd. in Lincroft; $1 will go directly to FPMC! This is a great way to raise awareness, support the environment and fundraise for our cause.
Family Promise of Monmouth County is proud to announce their selection as a grant recipient in a national partnership between Family Promise and HUMI, a Washington state-based nonprofit working with communities to fund and create programs helping families facing housing crises. The model is based on the shared beliefs of the two organizations that a combination of case management, opportunity, and community can empower the families we serve toward self-sufficiency. The mission of the partnership is simple: to ensure children are Homeless No More.
