The root of the problem of homelessness in central New Jersey is simple: Employment doesn’t pay a livable wage and housing is unaffordable. To combat this, FISH Hospitality works intensively with 3-5 families at a time to find sustainable housing.
In 2021 FHP provided shelter, meals and extensive support services to 15 families. That’s 31 children and 18 adults who stayed off the street and had the support they needed to regain their independence.
Keeping Families Together
FHP focuses on serving families experiencing homelessness in a manner that preserves the dignity and strength of the family. This includes keeping families together during this difficult time and ensuring that children may remain in their own school system.
Engaging the Community
FHP volunteers come to know the human face of homelessness. FISH Hospitality builds greater understanding of problems – and of solutions.
