Your Generosity Can Help End Homelessness
On May 1, 2015, tenants began moving into Kilmer Homes, newly constructed affordable apartments built on vacant land at the former Camp Kilmer army base in Edison, N.J. The 120-unit development includes 88 units of affordable workforce housing and 30 units of permanent, supportive housing for homeless individuals and families.
Monarch Housing is a proud partner in the development. The Kilmer Homes development is the result of nearly a decade of collaboration by a partnership of housing developers and social services providers.
Says Paul M. who moved into a new Kilmer Homes apartment from a homeless shelter with his fiancée and baby son, it “Means a lot because it will be a place that they can call home and raise their child in a safe environment. We are very grateful.” Says Paul, “Programs like this should be more available for families who want to make a change.”
Your generosity today on Giving Tuesday can:
- Help develop affordable rental housing that families like Paul M’s can be rapidly rehoused in their own apartments,
- Fund public policy efforts to increase state and federal funding for the housing vouchers and services so that every homeless person counted in NJCounts 2016 can be permanently housed
- Support sound planning efforts that help communities employ best practices.
