Reflections on 2018
As we near the end of 2018, we look back on our successes and reflect on what we could have done differently. We turn our thoughts toward home, welcoming the holiday season with those we love, or helping one another grapple with the year-end rush, while eagerly looking forward to a fresh beginning in the New Year.
This past year, Triple C Housing made great strides. For those we serve, to follow are highlights of the many ways in which we were able to make an impactful difference. In the spring, we hosted our first ever campaign of delivering smiles with care packages of household goods distributed to all of our consumers and community members in need, with a tremendous debt of gratitude to Amazon! We so thankfully landed storage space from Romark Logistics in Edison, to help store, sort and deliver the goods. In early summer, we hosted youth volunteers from the YMCA of Western Monmouth Camp Topanemus, who as leaders in training, came out to CIL Woods with us and toiled in the soil prepping the community garden for the residents. This past fall, our Project Aware program worked in partnership with Edison Township to exhibit our artists work, thus opening up new opportunities for them as four consumers received proceeds for the sale of their artwork. This winter, we completed our internal audit with outstanding results. And, we closed the year with great appreciation to Brandies Clearbrook Chapter, who raised donations of “warmth” with gloves, scarves, and hats for those we serve.
Our consumers and family members reached new heights of their potential, having achieved great milestones and outcomes throughout this past year. Several welcomed children, grandchildren and great grandchildren; health outcomes improved, volunteer work has flourished, and consumers graduated with a Masters, a bachelors and a culinary certificate respectfully. The community tenure in our supportive housing programs is consistently steady, with most of our programs having 95% occupancy. This list goes on, and we are so grateful for their trust in us as we witness their growth in the New Year and beyond.
Not one of our achievements would happen without you, our community. We depend on our network of staff and family advisory members, board, dedicated donors, families, supporters and community partners to encourage our progress, and lift our mission to expand our reach to individuals and families in need of stable housing and supportive services to live independently with dignity and achieve their utmost potential.
I wish to express sincere appreciation for your support and collaboration, from all of us here at Triple C, to all of you!The team at Triple C Housing wishes you peace, joy and prosperity throughout the coming year! Happy Holidays and healthy, Happy New Year!
On December 18th Triple C Housing was honored by the TJX Foundation, in Edison. We received a Grant from the foundation for Triple C’s supportive housing programs. We would like to thank everyone at the T.J. Maxx Regional Grants Program for their generous donation.

“When we heard about Triple C Housing, they told us they only had a few spots left. My family and I were living with my husbands aunt in her small house. We had no where else to go.”
