At Interfaith Neighbors, Inc. $0.94 of every dollar donated supports direct service programs for members of our community. In 2016, that totaled $4,513,463 in program services. $942,276 of those dollars were contributed by individuals and private grants and donations.
Our goal this year is to raise $1,000,000 to expand our impactful programs that strengthen families and help kids take flight for a promising future. We can only do this with your help. Here are some of the ways your donation will make a difference:
> Prevent Homelessness
Many families are just one crisis away from losing their home. An extended illness, loss of a job, or even a major car repair and put a family months behind on their rent or mortgage payments. Your support directly provides short term stipends to families to get through these difficult times.
> Helping Seniors Stay in their Own Homes
Too often, limited, fixed income, loss of mobility, and isolation are the causes of our senior population being forced to leave their own homes. Your support helps our Meals on Wheels and congregate nutrition programs deliver and serve over 3,000 meals each day across Monmouth County.
> Reducing Underemployment and Underemployment
Many young adults in our area have grown up with few working role models, limited employment opportunities and lack of confidence in their ability to succeed in the workplace. Your support provides support for those entering the workforce for the first time or re-entering the workforce in developing skills tied directly to local employment opportunities in our area.
> Supporting First-Time Home Buyers and Entrepreneurs
Owning a home or a business can truly lift a family or individual out of poverty. When you support Interfaith Neighbors you are supporting the creation of new affordable housing, entrepreneurial training and business planning.
