M25 Initiative Raises Money to Support Anti-Homelessness EffortsLast Edited:
A South Jersey organization used the most important meal of the day to help bring an end to homelessness.
The M25 Initiative held its 3rd annual Breakfast for the Homeless at the Ramada in Vineland.
The breakfast helped raise money to support the efforts of the Cumberland County Code Blue Coalition and the Housing First Program, which helps provide shelters during the winter and housing for homeless individuals throughout the South Jersey county.
Officials say it's all part of their mission to ultimately end homelessness once and for all.
"The goal that we have is to actually end homelessness by 2020," said Robin Weinstein, president and founder of the M25 Initiative.
"The thing is we don't want to just be triaging homelessness, we actually want to end it and the cure to homelessness is a home, it's a place to call home."
The M25 Initiative works to provide housing and important resources to not only help give homeless people a place to stay but give them a fresh start.
