Strategy to End Homelessness in Monmouth County Is In The Works

Comments are sought on a draft report on a plan to prevent and end homelessness. A formal presentation is scheduled for Wednesday.

Strategy to End Homelessness in Monmouth County Is In The Works
Over the past five years, the homeless population in Monmouth County has remained relatively stable at about 600 – 650 adults and children, according to government officials. In 2013, the county experienced a spike in the emergency shelter population, directly related to Superstorm Sandy, but as those families find permanent shelter, that number is returning to typical levels. 

The Monmouth County Homeless Systems Collaborative wants to figure out how to better address homelessness. 

The public is invited to read their preliminary report, the  Monmouth County Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness,  and submit comments by the end of July to tkelly@monarchhousing.org. 

A formal presentation of the plan is being offered on Wednesday, July 9th at 10 a.m. at the Agricultural Bldg, 4000 Kozloski Road, Freehold, NJ.
