February 13, 2019 – Family Promise of Hudson County, a nonprofit providing temporary shelter to homeless families in the community, will honor four local leaders for their commitment to ending homeless at the organization’s first anniversary event.
At this year’s event, Family Promise of Hudson County will honor CarePoint Health as its Corporate Champion, Hartshorn Portraiture as its Community Champion, and Captain Freeholder Anthony Romano and Stacey Flanagan as its Civic Champions.
“Our first anniversary event is a time to celebrate all we’ve accomplished over the last 12 months,” says Executive Director Rev. Andrew R. Bennett. “Since our ribbon cutting last February, we’ve helped eight families into homes. That’s only possible through the dedication of our congregations, donors, volunteers and community. CarePoint Health, Hartshorn Portraiture, Captain Freeholder Anthony Romano and Stacey Flanagan have been amazing advocates for the work we do and we are grateful for their support.”
