What We Do - Emergency/Transitional Housing in Central NJ
Last year, HomeFront provided over 10,000 nights of emergency shelter for families with children.
A model shelter, the Family Preservation provides safe, secure individual dormitory-style rooms for 44 families with young children. Work FirstNJ job training and life skills programs, childrens' educational enrichment and recreation programs, and individual case management are hallmarks of this center.
FreshStart offers service-enriched safe, secure apartments for homeless families.
Transitional programs provide interim housing for homeless families working towards self-sufficiency. All programs are enriched with individual case management, job and life skills training, parenting and counseling.
Residential program designed to meet the special needs of homeless women pregnant with their first child.
Housing for single disabled men who have recently been released from the hospital and need temporary living arrangements.
Subsidized housing for families in which the head of the household is not the biological parent (grandmother, aunt, etc.)
Partnerships for Family Independence
Program to help mothers living in subsidized housing transition from welfare to work with success.
Permanent Affordable Housing - Project HOME
As the real solution to family homelessness is permanent affording housing, HomeFront has developed and manages 62 permanent affordable housing units in Mercer County. All residents are in HomeFront case management programs and participate in supportive services to help them succeed and remain employed and successfully independent. These include sites Hamilton, Trenton and Lawrenceville.
