2016 Longest Night Campaign Kickoff Event & Anniversary Celebration 

11/2/16 | Liberty Prime Steakhouse | Downtown Jersey City 

Dear Friends & Supporters,

Garden State Episcopal CDC and our partner since 2013, Palisades Emergency Residence Corporation, are gearing up for our 2016 Longest Night Campaign Kickoff Event. This annual fundraising event launches one month of raising awareness around homelessness in Hudson County, and enables us to secure critical funding for the cold months ahead.

This year, we are celebrating two very important anniversaries: Garden State Episcopal is turning 30, and PERC is 35. Together, we are a powerful team committed to disrupting the cycle of poverty by building healthy communities that are rich in local resources and anchored by permanent, safe, affordable housing. We are proud to have remained vigilant over these many years - despite a growing need and diminishing financial resources.

Every day of the week, 365 days a year, we assist our neighbors in need - those experiencing housing instability, hunger and homelessness. Using every tool and resource available, we work to lift the despair of poverty and help people achieve independence and self-sufficiency.

You can make an impact on your community by sponsoring and attending our event on November 2nd. Your sponsorship will provide immediate, emergency help – to families facing eviction, parents without food to put on the table, and homeless men and women who need a warm place to sleep.

It has been said that helping a person will not necessarily change the world, but it will change the world for that person.  We know that our programs do just that: they are life-changing.  We think Patti G, a formerly homeless client who now lives stably in a rent-controlled apartment, said it best:

“Getting an apartment has changed my life completely. It felt like I was losing everything  . . . and then I got it back, and then some.”

We will see you in November! 

With many thanks for your compassionate support,

Carol Mori

Executive Director
