Who are the Homeless?

Press Release

PERTH AMBOY – We know the face of the homeless has evolved.  It’s Teens. It’s Families. It’s Veterans. It’s Senior Citizens. It’s the working poor. And YES, it’s the mentally ill, the addicted, and the marginalized.

As you may be aware, the YMCA in Perth Amboy has partnered with God’s Army Ministries to wage WAR on HOMELESSNESS by providing case management and system navigation services to people in need.

You are invited to our Ending Homelessness Dinner at Mi Tierra Restaurant 315 State Street in Perth Amboy on September 21st at 5:30 pm. Please confirm your attendance by texting “EndingRSVP” to 51555.

While the dinner is free, we humbly ask that you come with a heart to help.  We ask that you consider pledging a monthly donation to help the most vulnerable in our town.  All proceeds will go directly to support case management services. Just text “Ending” to 91999 and with your gift, you become part of the solution. In a time of chaos and crisis, people need support, guidance and sometimes a shoulder to cry on.  It is with this focus and spirit, we thank you for your support to continue the impactful work of moving people from homeless to housed.
