I'm the Founder and Executive Director of an all volunteer 501© 3 non-profit called Homeless To Independence Inc. We have been an incorporation and non-profit since March 9th, 2006. We are based in the City of Trenton, NJ and are very active throughout the State of New Jersey. Our website is: www.homelesstoindependence.org and we service all 50-states plus the District of Columbia helping people with employment, housing – including emergency services, first time home purchases and affordable housing, and special announcements of needed services such as updates on food stamp, breakfast and lunch, weatherization and other various programs.
We help people in need – those that have lost their housing due to fires, floods, and natural disaster families from hurricanes that have been transplanted into New Jersey with finding suitable housing, furniture, clothing and other necessities, plus those coming off the streets.
In the past we have held a Homeless Walk in October 3rd of 2009 and recently held our 4th Annual State Wide Winter Coat Drive. At least two-weekends a month we pickup and deliver furniture to needy families throughout the State of New Jersey. We also service three transitional men’s homes in the City of Trenton with hygiene bags when men move off the streets and into a home full of soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, shaving crème and shaver, deodorant, washcloth and many other items. As you can see we are a very active group.
I have received numerous awards from organizations such as the Ida B. Wells Award from the NAACP Edison/Metuchen Chapter, the Community Service Award from the Royal Priesthood Fellowship, honored by the NCADDNJ for my work with those in recovery, honored by the Garden State Bar Association for our work throughout the State of New Jersey and most recently the AAHPC Founder John A. Thomas Selfless Service Award.
WIMG radio has had me as a guest three (3) times and I have been featured most recently in the Trenton Times (Front Page), Trentonian and Star Ledger newspapers. The Volunteers of America featured Homeless To Independence Inc. in their August 2009 publication.
