Anyone who knows me knows that I love New Year’s. It’s about new beginnings, a clean slate, hope. How motivating! This year is no different. The entire staff is looking forward to expanding existing programs, starting new ones, and finding additional ways to help even more families.
But first, I want to express my gratitude to everyone who supported Family Promise of Bergen County in 2023. Your belief that families with children should never have to face the trauma of homelessness enabled us to negotiate with landlords and pay back rent, preventing families from becoming homeless. When families came to us having already lost their homes we had the resources to support them in their journey to self-sufficiency.
It is because of you that the future looks bright – even in light of rising prices and an increased need for our services. Together, we are making the bold statement that we will create a community where every working family has a stable home and the means to create a better life. And it is because of each of you, volunteer, donor, champion, that my confidence is high and my heart sings in anticipation of what is yet to come! THANK YOU!
Wishing you love, health, and happiness in the new year,
