Housing and Shelter Cause Week

Join our group fundraiser for this cause

Meet the NJECC charities that address this cause:

As many as 567,715 Americans are homeless on a typical night. 30% of those are people in families with children; 17% are chronically homeless individuals who are disabled and have experienced long-term and/or repeated episodes of homelessness; and 7% are Veterans. Unemployment, household assets, health conditions and disabilities, and race and demographics are all contributing factors that make it difficult to obtain shelter and housing.

If you care about helping end homelessness, show that #NewJerseyGives by making your pledge to charities working in this cause area.
