Keeping Homeless Families Together
The OritaniBank Charitable Foundation has awarded a $25,000 grant to Family Promise of Bergen County in support of the organization’s sheltering programs for temporarily homeless families. We are grateful for their continued support.
The goal of the Annual Holiday Gift Fund is to make holiday wishes come true for homeless families in our sheltering programs. Parents who cannot provide safe, stable housing for their children suffer the ultimate humiliation. These feelings of inadequacy are felt even more keenly during the holiday season. Family Promise provides a gift card for every member of each family so parents can shop for what their children want and need.
150 friends and supporters joined us to celebrate the 27th anniversary of Family Promise of Bergen County by being a part of our Annual Gala entitled “The Road Home”. The event honored long-time supporters, Ernestine Linn and West Side Presbyterian Church of Ridgewood All proceeds will support the sheltering programs of Family Promise of Bergen County.
Family Promise reminds you of the partnership with the NE Laser Vein Institute of Ridgewood. The NE Laser Vein Institute will donate all of the proceeds from one day of service per month to ensure that homeless families obtain the services they need to return to self-sufficiency.
