We have seen a 30% increase in new households seeking services to stay afloat as we feel the increased effects of COVID on our economy and way of life.
There are 181 Morris County families on the wait list for shelter as of April 28th.
Many families and individuals have used whatever savings they may have had to survive and maintain shelter/housing over the last few weeks and we are starting to see the increase in assistance requests.
We know that the short and long term impacts will cause all the more need for our community of guests, volunteers and simply, our neighbors next door. Through Shelter, Housing and Outreach Programs, FPMC provides resources, referrals, linkages and assistance to divert them from experiencing homelessness at each stage of the journey.
Much like the guests we serve, some of our volunteers and friends of Family Promise are experiencing new difficulties in paying their living expenses and even for food. We understand, and hope you adjust and move through this unprecedented time.
If we can be of assistance, please know, we are here for you.
Others, we understand, have already indicated to us that they have the means to donate, whether big or small contributions. If that is true for you, please consider making a gift to Family Promise of Morris County, either now or when you have the (extra) funds available.
We honor the fact that everyone has a different situation and offer this opportunity if your circumstance allows.
And to the entire Family Promise community we say again-
“Thank You”- we will come out of all this stronger and together.
Together, we r've raised...
