Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN)http://ihnoc.net/

Interfaith Hospitality Network of Ocean County – An Affiliate of Family Promise

Homelessness Affects Children and Their Families:            * A mother loses her job.        * A father cannot work because of an injury.        * A family loses its home by fire or natural disaster. * A family must choose between medical costs and rent or mortgage payments.         * Public transportation is unavailable or too expensive.        * Affordable housing is scarce in Ocean County. These are a few examples of why 40 percent of our homeless population, and why one out of every four homeless persons is a child. In response to this crisis, the Interfaith Hospitality Network brings the faith community together to help families regain their housing, their independence, and their dignity.

Your Grandmother’s Cupboard –  http://ygcnj.org/

Your Grandmother’s Cupboard is a non-profit organization established by people who recognize the needs of the homeless and working poor in our communities. The Cupboard was established to provide some of these basic needs through local donations. Many people living in poverty often do not have access to transportation to visit thrift shops and pantries. This program is unique because we bring clothing, shoes, blankets, and personal care items to where they are needed most.
