Family Promise of Morris County (FPMC) closed out November Homelessness Awareness Month by receiving a Proclamation from Assemblyman Bucco acknowledging its work to end homelessness in the county.
At the request of Assemblyman Anthony Bucco, the proclamation is bestowed to commemorate Homeless Awareness month, raise awareness of the issue and to recognize FPMC for their positive contributions to the County of Morris and it’s residents. Assemblyman Bucco urged all citizens to recognize and raise awareness of the issue of homelessness in our community.
“The recognition of National Homeless Awareness month provides an opportunity for us to tell the story of each and every person we help and the impact that has on our community,” said Joann Bjornson, executive director Family Promise of Morris County. “Regardless of age, race or religion, we work to ensure dignity and a path to self-sufficiency is provided to all those who seek it. I have to thank our volunteers and community members who give their time, talent and resources to support our shared mission of ending homelessness.”
In 2015 Family Promise of Morris County mobilized a volunteer workforce of more than 1,600 from 87 congregations to provide services to the county’s most vulnerable citizens with funding from grants, foundations and primarily private donors. Ninety three percent of FPMC donations go directly to support families in programs.
