As the only homeless shelter for children and their families in Hunterdon County, we respond to the emergent need for housing stability in our community. We envision the day when all Hunterdon County residents have the opportunity and means to live independently and without housing insecurities. Family Promise of Hunterdon County combines professional services, such as case management and counseling, with a robust congregational network of over 1,000 volunteers to serve families experiencing homelessness.
In addition to the programs we offer, we are committed to convey the message that there is a significant shortage of affordable housing across our nation and particularly in the State of New Jersey. This is one of the main causes for family homelessness, along with poverty, evictions, low wages, loss of income, foreclosures, natural and man-made disasters, as well as domestic violence.
