RED BANK — HABcore, Inc., a non-profit corporation providing supportive housing for the homeless and disabled, is the recipient of a grant of $10,000 from the “Vision for the Hill” program of the Tower Hill First Presbyterian Church at Red Bank.
The grants will be used to upgrade the flooring and lighting at the HABcore boarding homes in Red Bank.
For three years, the church has been raising funds to update and expand their facilities. Ten percent of these funds are earmarked for local and international charities who serve the needy in ways that support the church’s values and beliefs. HABcore was chosen by the church based on the important contribution it makes to providing dignity, stability and hope for homeless members of the Red Bank community.
Cynthia Sagosz, Mission Team Leader from the First Presbyterian Church, stated, “HABcore is truly providing a lifeline for some of the most vulnerable members of our community. When we have had such a brutally cold and snowy winter, we are even more aware and grateful for the job HABcore is doing, providing warm beds, stability and counseling to our neighbors in need.”
HABcore, Inc. serves Monmouth and Ocean counties. HABcore provides a clean, safe home and supportive services to over 100 residents each day. HABcore works internally and with peer agencies to help the residents rebuild their lives and become productive members of society. Over the past two decades, HABcore has assisted over 400 homeless individuals and families. Now, more than ever, the help of the community is needed to maintain existing facilities and to meet the growing demand for affordable housing. The generous support received from the First Presbyterian Church will further HABcore’s efforts to bring a brighter future to those who are less fortunate.
