Not Too Late to Help Monarch and Our Partners Furnish New Homes for the Homeless
Monarch Housing Associates and our partners would like to thank our generous partners and friends who have donated over $3,200 in Bed Bath & Beyond gift cards to help furnish the apartments for the homeless families moving into new apartments at Kilmer Homes in Edison, New Jersey.
A very special thank you to AJD Construction, the general contractor for the development, which generously donated $1,500 towards the purchase of gift cards.
Contributions from Monarch board members and friends of Monarch have made up the balance of the donations.
It is not too late to join them! Any gift card donation that you make is greatly appreciated! And please consider asking your colleagues, friends and families to join you.
The homeless families will use the gift cards to purchase household item such as bedding, towels, cleaning supplies and products, hangers, and kitchen garbage cans – all of the basics that are needed when furnishing a new apartment.

The 120-unit affordable housing development includes 88 units of workforce housing, 30 units of permanent supportive housing for homeless families, and 2 superintendent’s units.
In early January, a lottery was held with 153 homeless households applying for the 30 units of permanent, supportive housing. That translates into over 5 homeless households applying for each apartment.
Fifteen (15) homeless families will be moving in on April 1, 2015 and fifteen (15) families on May 1, 2015. Can you help us help them turn their new apartments into homes?
Your donation will be recognized at the Kilmer Homes grand opening later this year.
