COVID-19 has had a significant impact on everyone, but it has been especially devastating to the most vulnerable populations served by Family Promise. With the near-historic unemployment, housing instability, and food insecurity, we have adjusted our programs to meet the growing demand. Our direct response to the COVID-19 outbreak and the subsequent economic fallout, Family Promise is engaged in a community-wide effort to house unsheltered households as quickly as possible and prevent others from losing their homes to protect their health and safety. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Family Promise has seen a substantial increase in demand for our programs and services:

  •       60% increase for Outreach services
  •             47% increase in Housing service  
  •       New demographics seeking assistance 
  •   Increase of ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Restrained, Employed) families         and individuals struggling to pay bills, rent, grocery, etc. during the duration of COVID health crisis.

   

Fulfilling the Promise by:

·       Providing immediate, onsite services at eviction court with our Navigating Hope Mobile Unit

·       Offering eviction prevention services to the community

·       Housing 25 unsheltered, homeless households using our unique partnership

with the Morris County Housing Authority

·       Providing 24/7 wraparound services to those at-risk of losing their home


To meet the growing needs and to better serve our community, we launched the Fulfilling the Promise campaign.
