State budget cuts threaten expansion of addressing youth homelessness in New Jersey
For more than 35 years, Ocean's Harbor House has been doing some exceptional work for so many youths in our local community in Ocean County and beyond, but there is a great call to action now to help them help others.
This Toms River, Ocean County-based nonprofit has helped so many at-risk youth and teenagers between the ages of 10-19 and has a targeted focus on the issues that are still very much prevalent today in Youth Homelessness, Youth and Families in Crisis, and Sexual Exploitation of Children -- which includes sex trafficking -- and all of it happening in our backyards.
There has been remarkable comeback, redemption, rescue stories from those who have received the heartwarming and dedicated care from those volunteering and working at Ocean's Harbor House over the years.
For an inside look at what they do and the call for action from Gov. Phil Murphy and state legislators to help provide funding that was cut a couple years ago from non-profits like Ocean's Harbor House and others, OHH Executive Director, Alice Woods, and OHH Development Director, Tim Zeiss, were guests on Sunday morning on 'Shore Time with Vin and Dave' on 94.3 The Point discussing these very important issues and much more.
