HomeFront, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending homelessness and poverty in Central New Jersey, hosts its seventh annual Week of Hope Feb. 12-17.
The event aims to elevate awareness of the multifaceted challenges inherent in poverty and homelessness while galvanizing community engagement through impactful service initiatives.
Homelessness and poverty remain persistent challenges affecting thousands of local families. Last year, HomeFront served over 25,000 unique individuals through its 35 programs and services. In response to this issue, HomeFront’s Week of Hope brings together individuals, organizations, and communities to make a tangible difference in the lives of those in need.
During the Week of Hope, HomeFront will orchestrate an array of events and educational forums. Among these, a panel discussion titled “Harvesting Hope: Navigating the Challenges of Food Insecurity Together” will convene area social service leaders. The event is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 16, to be held at Morven Museum & Garden beginning at 6 p.m.
Additional opportunities abound during the Week of Hope, such as attending a volunteer orientation to gain insights into the volunteer program and current needs, extending assistance at the Choice Food Pantry, which is currently supporting a record number of families, and engaging with HomeFront’s CEO during a Lunch and Learn session. A plethora of other events are slated throughout the week.
HomeFront invites individuals, businesses, and organizations to join in this collaborative effort to create positive change and build stronger, more resilient communities.
