Homelessness is on the decline in NJ
Project Live was given a nod in an article in the Star Ledger (January 10, 2012) about the decline in Homelessness in NJ and US.
HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan recently announced $4.1 million in funding to help Newark and Essex County fight homelessness, part of nearly $1.5 billion to help more than 7,000 such programs across the country. These grants support a broad range of housing and services — from street outreach to transitional and permanent homes that individuals and families need to start rebuilding their lives.
In Newark, this investment will support efforts like Project Live Inc., which provides residential services to individuals with mental illness, including 24-hour supervised group homes, as well as independent living services.
