Tom Harrigan, Program Director

Tom is the heart and soul of PERC, and most people cannot think of us without thinking of Tom.  As our program director, he oversees our four emergency shelter programs, case management and related programming and referral services.  Tom began his tenure at PERC in 1992 as a volunteer.  He enjoyed helping people who were homeless or in dire need of help to find new opportunities for another chance to succeed at life.  Tom was first hired as a part-time staff member before becoming full-time Program Director, once serving as Acting Executive Director. A graduate of New Jersey City University, he is a CASAC certified social worker and an expert in homelessness, support services and addiction.  In 2012, 46% of our emergency shelter guests and 100% of our family shelter guests were placed into permanent housing, a testament to Tom's skill and commitment for serving those least among us. Tom is bilingual in English and Spanish and is a native of Hoboken, NJ.
