What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Sussex County, NJ has a growing number of homeless households. Over recent years the region has seen a 25% increase in 2017 and an additional 14% increase in homelessness in 2018. NJ is the highest state in the nation for foreclosures with 1 in 605 households in some stage of the foreclosure process. Sussex County experiences the second highest level of household experiencing a foreclosure (1 in 32 households). Many county residents are living on the edge of poverty and on the brink of a housing crisis. Family Promise of Sussex County works with at-risk and homeless households to reduce the trauma of homelessness by quickly re-stabilizing families into permanent housing.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Family Promise of Sussex County vision is that every individual and family shall have a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future. The agency’s goal is to assist homeless families and individuals in accessing safe resources for temporary housing, preventing homelessness by providing rental arrears to those who may have fallen behind in rent due to a housing or family crisis, or relocating individuals to more affordable housing.

Family Promise of Sussex County provided a broad spectrum of services including emergency shelter, case management, rapid rehousing, permanent supportive housing, and homeless prevention programs. Trained, professional staff provide education, guidance, and support to clients to bring about sustainable change. The agency works collaboratively with other local service providers to create a compassionate network of care that reduces the trauma impact for those experiencing a housing crisis.

Family Promise of Sussex County has a team of highly trained and professional staff including Bachelor and Master Level Housing Specialists and state Licensed Social Workers. The organization was founded in 1997 and has been providing services to meet the growing needs of the homeless population for over 20 years.



FPSC staff have extensive experience working with at-risk populations and supporting the needs of low-income families. The agency engages with a number of colleges and universities and hosts Bachelor and Master level Social Work student interns to further support the needs of clients in attaining housing stability while helping to train the next generation of professional staff in the field of Social Work.



Staff are trained in cultural competency and sensitivity, and work with families to meet their individual and culturally specific needs. The organization strives to move beyond cultural awareness and cultural sensitivity to embrace difference.

In 2018, Family Promise of Sussex County served 230 households impacting 504 individuals (303 adults and 201 children). The Emergency Shelter Program provided emergency housing to 14 households comprised of 19 adults and 17 children. The Men’s Day program service 36 street homeless individuals, 8 of whom were chronically homeless and 4 of whom were Veterans. Intensive Case Management was provided to 468 individuals. The Rapid Rehousing Programs employed by the agency were effective in assisting 46 households (101 individuals: 64 adults and 37 children) in re-establishing permanent stable housing. Homeless Prevention Programs assisted 16 households, (52 individuals: 31 adults and 21 children) with stopping a court ordered eviction. Our newest program, Permanent Supportive Housing, provided stable housing solutions for 10 households (13 adults and 3 children).

The agency is working collaboratively with local county and municipal officials to establish a Code Blue response and has been providing a Drop-In Day Center where street homeless individuals and those with no access to heat and electricity can come to warm up on a cold winter’s day, charge electronic devices, shower, do laundry, and meet with professional staff to address barriers to housing stability. The agency is currently fundraising to expand this program and provide overnight shelter and support options. Family Promise of Sussex County is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Donations are tax deductible (EIN 22-3496775).
