RENT RELIEF FUND
In response to COVID-19, Morris Area NJ Together leaders, the Morris Area Clergy Council, Wind of the Spirit, and our allies at Cornerstone Family Programs & Morristown Neighborhood House worked to address rent insecurity in Morris County.
As part of this work and with the help of the Community Foundation of New Jersey, we set up a rent relief fund that was hosted by Cornerstone Family Programs & Morristown Neighborhood House. (More about Cornerstone Family Programs & Morristown Neighborhood House here.)
The fund was for residents of Morris County, regardless of citizenship status. It offered a portion of the rent needed & prioritized those in greatest need. Individuals needed only to show loss of income & payments were made directly to the landlord.
All funds donated directly supported families in need. Morris Area Together secured the costs of any administrative fees, etc., incurred from foundations or other sources.
Cornerstone Family Programs and Morristown Neighborhood House provide much-needed help to over 6,000 children, families, adults, veterans and seniors each year. We have a shared mission of strengthening the community by helping people build better lives. We believe that everyone deserves a chance for a happy, healthy and productive life.
