Triple C Housing, Inc. extends its tremendous gratitude to the State of NJ Department of Human Services, Division of Mental Health Services (NJDMHAS), for “paying it forward” to deliver much needed PPE during COVID-19 to support essential staff on the frontlines of delivering residential care and supportive services to individuals and families with disabilities.
Earlier this month, the NJ DMHAS staff coordinated with Leslie Stivale, CEO of Triple C Housing, to deliver several boxes of critical PPE including masks, face shields and surgical gloves to support essential staff. This gesture of support is so appreciated and welcomed given the ongoing service delivery demands taking place in the group homes and community at large to outreach residents in their homes.
Additionally, Triple C Housing is doing all it can to support residents in the general community in its supportive housing programs with the implementation of a residential care facility to support COVID impacted individuals with disabilities in need of additional care and quarantine. It is with the backing of the leadership at the State of NJ DMHAS and the NJ Department of Health that Triple C was able to accomplish this endeavor.
Lastly, Triple C Housing is maintaining its goals of keeping 100% of its employees fully employed, without any layoffs. The agency has abided by the stay at home measures since early March. Due to COVID-19 and having 60+ team members as active essential staff, the agency is working hard to ensure that all employees have proper PPE.
“Our team members are an amazing group of dedicated people who have never wavered in supporting everyone we serve in every way possible. To have the necessary PPE and supplies during these very stressful times is so critical to our frontline heroes. We are so grateful to the State of NJ Department of Human Services’ Commissioner Carole Johnson for her leadership and for the ongoing support of Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services” says Leslie Stivale.
Triple C is a grass-roots organization that has helped to make the dream of living independently with dignity become a reality for those they serve throughout Middlesex, Monmouth, and Ocean counties. Our mission is to create permanent supportive housing opportunities coupled with innovative support services empowering individuals and families to live with dignity and fulfill their utmost potential.
