Do Good Spotlight on: HomeFront

We went local with our spotlight this week, shining it on HomeFront in Trenton, NJ. HomeFront is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty. Working to end homelessness in central New Jersey, they unite resources and apply them directly to those in need. They also provide their clients skills training and connect them with opportunities to ensure adequate incomes, and work to increase the availability of affordable housing. They teach homeless families to advocate for themselves individually and collectively. We’ve always been impressed by HomeFront and were happy to donate when one of our team members mentioned she’s a dedicated supporter. We donated cash, and they appreciate household and other help too. Learn more here and please consider donating.

 

I hope this issue was helpful to you as we navigate through these weeks to a more resilient future.

Stay well, be strong.
