RED BANK, NJ: When you’ve got the team, the passion and know your mission, you’re half way there.

HABcore, a non-profit provides homeless families, veterans, and individuals with special needs with housing, meals, and nurturing support, was selected last week to receive a $114k grant from Impact 100 Jersey Coast.

Out of hundreds of applicants, four were selected with each making their pitch through a 4-minute video statement because of the pandemic restricting in-person interviews.

Kathleen Mullarkey, President of HABcore Board said, "We are thrilled to have been a finalist and to be chosen as a recipient.  Our mission is strong, and we are committed to the community to help serve and provide stability, dignity and hope.  Thank you to the Impact 100 Jersey Coast members who voted for us, we are forever grateful."

HABcore's Independence Pathways Program combines affordable housing with coordinated services to assist individuals struggling with chronic physical and mental health issues, maintain stable housing and receive appropriate support and employment services.

Families are offered several other options including the Strengthening Families component, which provides more intensive services focusing on healthy lifestyles, parenting/communication skills and improving children's school performance.

HABcore’s Supported Employment Program helps residents overcome barriers to maintaining and improving work, reducing debt, and increasing savings.

The goal is for HABcore’s clients to succeed independently in their communities.

Your support would help tremendously to maintain these support programs that provides significant future dividends.

"The HABcore team, board members, and our families are honored to be selected as one of the 2020 recipients of the Impact 100 Jersey Coast grant.  This recognition holds us in the highest of standards.  We gladly accept the trust Impact 100 is putting on us, and we commit ourselves to the Strengthening Families goals.  This is a testament to HABcore's 32-year mission to offer supportive services to those experiencing homelessness, and to our board, staff and case management teams. The year ahead is expected to be challenging.  This generous grant supports our goal of offering increased supportive services to the families in Monmouth County. We strive to break the cycle of homelessness for children and enhance their futures,” said Marta Quinn, Senior Director of Development.
