Help Support These Cardboard Cities to Help Raise Awareness

posted May 4, 2016, 5:58 PM by web feat
While many will be warm and dry inside their homes, this May, teenagers in 2 Warren County communities will be outside raising awareness of family homelessness and raising funds for Family Promise of Warren County. 

Family Promise of Warren County and the Interfaith Hospitality Network sheltering program are once again honored to be the donor recipient of not one, but two, Cardboard Box City events in 2016. 

On May 14 & 15, youth from the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Hackettstown will hold their event, followed by the youth of St. Theodore Roman Catholic Church  in Port Murray on May 21 & 22.

A cardboard box city event is a great way for youth groups and for the entire community to raise awareness of homelessness in our own backyards. 

Many Warren County families face serious challenges to housing stability. Some need comprehensive services to keep them safe and to end their homelessness.  Family Promise of Warren County is a small but mighty non-profit agency that does just that, keeping families together and safe. We are all very grateful and fortunate to have these youth groups helping the agency to keep its doors open to those most in need.

Please feel free to reach out to the contact individuals listed below to see how you can help to make these events successful. You can support and sponsor the youth in this endeavor to address this important issue in our communities!
