SAYREVILLE—Coming Home of Middlesex County, Inc., a newly established non-profit agency, is holding its first annual meeting from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 16 at the Middlesex Fire Academy in Sayreville. The meeting is open to the public.
Coming Home seeks to provide permanent housing for people living in homeless shelters; people who recently have lost their homes due to the economic downturn; and people living in substandard housing conditions, including overcrowding, in vehicles, or in “tent cities.”
The meeting will focus on the progress of Middlesex County‘s “10-Year Plan to End Homelessness,” which calls for the establishment of 520 units of permanent affordable housing over the next 10 years.
Middlesex County Freeholder Blanquita Valenti, Secretary-Treasurer of Coming Home, said, “The goal of the 10-Year Plan is to create and construct affordable, accessible and permanent housing, while responding compassionately to homelessness on a daily basis. Housing is a basic human right.”
The Executive Board of Coming Home also includes Robert Mulcahy, chair; Elizabeth Hance, vice chair; elected officials and representatives of the corporate, private and non-profit sectors; and persons who have been homeless.
Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 1-732-745-4519 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
