MORRISTOWN, NJ – A $100,000 affordable housing grant has been awarded to Homeless Solutions, Inc. through the TD Charitable Foundation's Housing for Everyone grant competiton. The competition invited local non-profit organizations along the Eastern seaboard to submit proposals outlining plans and initiatives to support and provide affordable housing initiatives in their communities.
The grant will provide renovations for the Mt. Kemble Home which was founded in 1883 to provide affordable housing for elderly single women. The Mt. Kemble Home became a part of the Homeless Solutions in May 2013.
“We’re thrilled to have been selected through this highly competitive process," said Interim Homeless Solutions Chief Executive Officer Dan McGuire. "This funding facilitates the creation of two additional units, which enables us to increase our capacity to serve this vulnerable population and helps move the Mt. Kemble Home towards being financially self-sustaining.”
This year’s “Housing for Everyone” theme was Affordable Housing for Seniors, focusing on initiatives that support the development of safe, affordable, accessible housing for older adults, ages 55 and over.
The Housing for Everyone grant competition is one of the TD Charitable Foundation’s most widely known signature programs. Twenty-five organizations throughout TD Bank’s footprint from Maine to Florida were awarded a $100,000 grant for a total grant donation of $2.5 million in 2015.
