MORRIS COUNTY — Family Promise of Morris County (FPMC), a social service provider assisting Morris County neighbors in a situation of homelessness has launched their “Keys to Housing Program” Campaign.
The agency was awarded new permanent housing vouchers from the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) which covers the cost of rent for 15 prospective tenants but not the initial one-time costs of $3,000+ for additional expenses.
The tenants may need any or all of the following: Realtor fees, Moving cost, Storage, Clean up / Set up, Inspections / compliance, Apartment Repairs, Transportation, Furniture and household items, Case Management and Housing Stabilization. This unique Morris County Program implements the strategy of employing a Housing Resource Program Coordinator and Licensed Social Workers to help families and individuals build a sustainable community by addressing job training, employment, financial literacy, physical and mental health, child care, legal issues and obtain safe, affordable, permanent housing.
“We are prioritizing the immediate need of stable housing as it is a critical milestone in achieving the ultimate goal of self-sufficiency. We help locate, obtain, and retain permanent housing for our families and individuals and act as a liaison between clients and landlords to make safe, affordable housing a win-win situation for tenants and landlords.” said Executive Director Joann Bjornson, LSW.
The Goal Is To Raise $60k To House Up To 15 Families With Your Assistance.
This request is TIME SENSITIVE as Family Promise has families ready to be housed and their vouchers expire by September 30, 2017. A match opportunity through Help Us Move In (HUMI) will match donations, bringing families even closer to having a home.
