Family Promise of Bergen County, New Jersey – Great Football Sunday Charity
Family Promise of Bergen County (FPBC), a Great Football Sunday charity, is the only organization in Bergen County, New Jersey, helping working families overcome temporary homelessness. The FPBC Network provides shelter year-round for homeless families with dependent children through a host network of local churches and synagogues. The New Leaf Transitional Housing program provides subsidized apartments for families for 12 to 18 months as they make the transition to self-sufficient living. All client families work with a case manager on financial planning, job training, educational options, childcare and a mandatory savings plan. Counseling and other support services are aimed at empowering parents to reach and sustain permanent housing. In addition, FPBC offers a two-week summer camp for children in the shelter programs and runs the Walk-In Dinner Program where volunteers provide, prepare and serve free dinners to approximately 125 needy people each night. Founded in 1986, Family Promise of Bergen County is headquartered in Ridgewood, NJ, and is an affiliate of the national Family Promise, a not-for-profit organization.
100K Homes, Community Solutions, N.J./New York City
– Great Football Sunday Charity
The 100K Homes Campaign, a Great Football Sunday charity, is a national movement of over 175 communities working together to find permanent homes for 100,000 chronic and medically vulnerable homeless Americans by July 2014. The initiative is powered by Community Solutions, a national not-for-profit organization whose mission is to end homelessness by helping communities build efficient systems that target resources to individuals and families quickly and predictably. Communities participating in the 100K Homes campaign are committed to revamping their multiple overlapping service systems into a single, well-oiled housing placement machine capable of moving homeless individuals and families into permanent housing in as little time as possible. By applying process improvement techniques drawn from the private sector to local housing and human service work, many communities have been able to reduce the amount of time required to house a homeless person by as much as 80 percent. Based in New York City, Community Solutions has been recognized with the Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation, the World Habitat Award, and the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence, among other honors.

A football game pits two teams against each other, but Great Football Sunday is about coming together as one team with one purpose – to end homelessness.
