NJEA member starts program for homeless families in Jersey City

There’s an old saying, “A woman’s work is never done.” That’s especially true for Tiffany Kane, a second-grade teacher in Jersey City and executive director of Family Promise Hudson County.

Family Promise Hudson County is part of a national organization that works to keep families together by relying on places of worship to provide temporary housing. She recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Fountain of Salvation Church on Communipaw Avenue. She was joined by Jersey City Paraprofessionals Association President Edwinta Rhue (Pictured, left).

“There’s such a need for helping homeless families, and we’re just one of the resources that will help. We are going to be able to provide that service for families or the homeless in our area,” said Kane. Local churches serve as host locations. The goal is to keep families intact while they work toward permanent housing.
