Homeless Solutions Inc

homelesssolutions.org

Founded in 1983 with PCM to provide beds and meals to Morristown’s homeless population, Homeless Solutions has grown to a county-wide organization that operates a homeless shelter for families and individuals. Their slogan, “A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out” encapsulates their vision for their work with the homeless and the working poor in our community.  Homeless Solutions has an outstanding Transitional Housing Program to help the formerly homeless develop the skills to find employment, housing, and to manage their finances so they can become stable and self-supporting.  Working to address the disparity between rising housing costs and stagnant wages, Homeless Solutions Inc. builds new housing units to offer more safe, affordable housing options. They operate a Safe Haven for the mentally ill. The Mount Kemble Women’s Home is now operated by Homeless Solutions for senior women who find themselves unable to afford housing.  The organization has a professional staff bolstered by many volunteers; contact them through their website for opportunities to cook meals, entertain children, or donate money in support of their many programs.
