FROM Surviving TO THRIVing
Stopping the cycle of abuse was one of Marie's main priorities. Growing up in poverty and crisis provided no foundation for stability. After fleeing from domestic violence, Marie became dedicated to healing. Through our Neighbors In Need program, Marie participated in intensive case management, financial counseling and our Sound Minds Mental Health Program. Volunteer support accessed Marie to weekly meals to offset expenses and staff provided 24/7 crisis intervention. Marie received a life-changing opportunity that led to her family moving into an affordable housing unit. This family is now thriving based on the drastic improvement in quality of life and HOME’s trauma-informed approach to helping our families work towards independence.
Referrals for our emergency shelter program must be obtained from the Somerset County Board of Social Services
HOME also partners with the Division of Child Protection & Permanency to accept families on a case-by-case basis

MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Volunteering provides empowerment and is a gateway to connecting with your community. Volunteers play many supportive roles throughout our programming. No gesture is too big or too small to truly make an impact in someone’s life. We value the many volunteers whose contribution to HOME is reflected in the victories of our families as they work towards independence.
