The Investors Bank Foundation has presented a $10,000 grant to Monarch Housing Associates.

The grant will be used to sponsor a one-day conference that gives homeless service providers in New Jersey the best practice examples and tools they need to end homelessness in the state.

Monarch Housing’s mission is to expand the supply, accessibility and variety of affordable, permanent supportive housing through development, planning, policy and partnerships.

Established in 2005, the Investors Foundation enriches the lives of New Jersey and New York citizens by supporting initiatives in the arts, education, youth development, affordable housing, and health and human services. To date, the Foundation has pledged more than $7 million in support of the communities the bank serves.

“We are very grateful for this funding. Investor’s investment will assist Continuums of Care that Monarch works with that have begun to implement changes recently made to federal funding targeted toward ending homelessness. These best practices and tools will help local communities take ending homelessness in their communities to the “next level.”

Said Monarch’s Senior Associate, Taiisa Kelly.
