Eagle Scout & Troop Members Restore Parking Area

posted Jan 9, 2016, 2:20 PM by web feat

Service to others is an important part of the Boy Scout oath and Family Promise of Warren County is very pleased to be the beneficiary or a great Eagle Scout Service Project. 

Jonathan Carlile took on the massive project of restoring our parking lot. Even the gloomiest days did not stop him and his hardy crew from Boy Scout troop # 2010 from working on this project at the Family Promise of Warren County Day Center. 

Jonathan was the leader for this much needed parking lot restoration, and he did a great job repairing this area for the agency’s passenger van and employee parking.

One of the rank requirements for Boy Scout projects is to plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to a nonprofit organization such as Family Promise.

Through this requirement, Jonathan practices what he has learned and gains valuable project management and leadership experience.

Special thanks to soon to be Eagle Scout Jonathan for his hard work and to his troop and leaders for their role in his journey for making our area safer for the families we serve!


"In Support of Children" Help Out AGAIN!

posted Jan 9, 2016, 2:12 PM by web feat   [ updated Jan 9, 2016, 2:14 PM ]

Special Thanks go out to a great group of North Warren Regional students who are operating an organization called In Support of Children.

ISOC is an educational organization and their mission is to raise awareness to the dangers of corporal punishment of children. Their slogan is: "It's never OK to hit a child.” 

This extraordinary group of students is operating the only high school chapter of this national organization.

In addition to the recent television donation for the children’s room, they also initiated a drive to secure funding for the IHN shelter program. They did this when they learned that Family Promise recently lost $50,000.00 in IHN operating funds due to State of NJ cutbacks for Emergency Assistance for the families served in this essential program.

Here the In Support of Children members and President Sasha Polonko present the check to Executive Director, Bob Frankenfield.

Thanks to this great group of students! They are:
Sasha Polonko - President
Rachel Portella
Cole Palatini
Jenny Hovell
Gwen Saalfeld
Faculty advisor, Mr. Kudrak

THANK YOU!

Mansfield Elementary Student Council Supports Family Promise Again!

posted Jan 9, 2016, 1:58 PM by web feat   [ updated Jan 9, 2016, 1:59 PM ]

Special thanks go out to the Mansfield Township Elementary School Student Council and to all of the students, the staff and administration for their donation of pajamas to Family Promise of Warren County and for their loyal and continued support of our programs. 

Not only did they provide the families we serve with new pajamas, but they also provided a most generous contribution of $536.64. 

This could not have come at a better time. Due to State of NJ cutbacks, Family Promise of Warren County lost $50,000 in funding this year that had previously supported the Interfaith Hospitality Network shelter program. 

The economy has been hitting many Warren County families very hard and Family Promise programs, especially the Interfaith Hospitality Network shelter program, are crucial in preventing homelessness, as well as sheltering and keeping families together. 

Family Promise keeps families safe and helps families to regain housing. The ongoing partnership with Mansfield Elementary has been invaluable for the families and children of Warren County.  THANK YOU!
