MORRISTOWN, NJ - The Mt. Kemble Home, a program of Homeless Solutions, Inc. in Morristown, provides safe, affordable housing for 22 elderly women of limited means from the Morris County area.  As part of a larger renovation project at the Home, Homeless Solutions is expanding a small common area kitchen into a full-fledged kitchen that will be a new hub of activity for the residents.  The expansion will approximately double the size of the kitchen and include two stoves, a double sink, dishwasher, and plenty of cabinet and counter space for storage of supplies and utensils.

The Mt. Kemble Home in Morristown was founded in 1883 to provide affordable housing for elderly single women of very limited means, and it has been placed on national and state historic registers, in part due to its unique, purpose-built social mission.  In May 2013, The Mt. Kemble Home became a part of Homeless Solutions, and The Home is now one of their programs providing shelter, housing, and supportive services to low income people.  The Mt. Kemble Home is currently in the midst of an extensive, multi-phased renovation.

In order to equip the new kitchen with the needed supplies, The Mt. Kemble Home is hosting a supply drive, in search of the items listed below. If you are interested in participating, please contact Liz Johnson at lizjohnson@homelesssolutions.org or at 973.538.0675.
