Did you know that, this year alone, more than 2.5 million children will experience homelessness in the US? As families with children become the fastest growing segment of the homeless population, a gap widens between family income and housing costs. Fortunately, there are heroes in the community that are here to help.
Family Promise is the only organization in Bergen County that is devoted to providing shelter and support to working families that become homeless while they overcome financial crisis. About 50% of the people Family Promise serves are children. So each August, 30 children who are currently or were recently homeless spend two-fun-filled weeks at Family Promise’s “Camp Lots-of-Fun.” Adventures, cooperative play and exciting, shared experiences build campers’ self-esteem and leave them with happy memories.
The Carballo Agency is committed to transforming the lives of homeless families by raising awareness and funds to cover the costs of the children’s field trips, transportation, lunches, snacks and camp activities. Our agency will make a $10 donation on your behalf, for every recommendation you send our way for a quote (no purchase necessary).
