On July 28th, 2009 Hope through Care, Inc. was represented by our President Lilianna Giedrys in Washington DC when she joined the NJ Advocacy Network to End Homelessness for the annual Congressional Reception during which they met with New Jersey Congress and Senate representatives as well as with many organizations that share the same goal of fighting homelessness.
During the reception the proposed budget and new programs were introduced as well as success stories of once homeless individuals and families were shared to inspire the others.
On September 17th 2010 we had an official Open House to introduce our Transitional Residence for Families to the sponsors, local officials, agencies and organizations.
We were honored to welcome Mayor James Anzaldi and Ms. Carmen Perez-DePadua, a representative from Congressman Bill Pascrell's office as well as Pastor Paul Rittinger from Jacksonville Chapel and Pastor Mike Weber from the United Reformed Church, the Knights of Columbus of Wayne and the Knights of Columbus ofKinnelon. Since we work closely with the Catholic Charities, Clifton Board of Education, local vocational schools, banks and other businesses we had a pleasure to present our mission and our recent accomplishments to their representatives as well as discuss the possibilities of the future cooperation.
Thank you "Cheffie" Christine for making this event special; we greatly appreciate your donating of time and resources and we also thank Evelyn for helping Christine. You two are a great team !!!
