Did you know...

     * Families with children under 10 years of age are the fastest growing group of homeless in America? In Warren County almost half (45%) of the homeless this year are children.
     *That a growing number of hardworking families in our county are now finding themselves homeless due to the market collapse, job loss, and home foreclosures?
     * Interfaith Hospitality Network is a concept born right here in New Jersey, which has expanded to 162 IHN programs nationwide? It is extremely cost effective, because about 75% of the cost of serving these families is in the form of volunteer time and in kind donations by network congregations.

Thankfully, the success rate in transitioning families back into permanent homes in our communities is excellent, and about 85% of our families find permanent housing within three months. 

Read more about families being helped, and how Family Promise is doing it in the Winter Issue of the Family Promise in Warren County Newsletter. We also invite you to download and share copies with friends - neighbors - and others who might be interested in being part of the solution to homelessness in Warren County.
