Freeholder John Cimino recently attended an event at HomeFront celebrating the seventh anniversary of the Family Preservation Center in West Trenton and honoring retiring Director Thora Faigle. The Center offers support including temporary housing, food and educational services to assist Mercer families break the cycle of poverty.

The Family Preservation Center and Director Faigle were feted by community leaders, affiliated staff and executives, as well as former residents who shared their personal stories of success, thanks in large part to Ms. Faigle and the work done at the Center. “From my first tour of HomeFront’s facility in Lawrence, I was very moved by the dedicated and fine work done by the staff and volunteers,” said Cimino. “Their success rate in moving families out of the dire circumstances of homelessness into stable home environments is most impressive.”

HomeFront is a non-profit agency offering services to the poor and homeless of Mercer County. For more information on HomeFront and the services they offer, go to their web site at:
