A bridge between homelessness and hope
Neighbors Helping NeighborsHousing Initiatives of Princeton (HIP) is dedicated to transitioning low-income working families who are facing imminent homelessness to permanent housing and sustained self-sufficiency. HIP also helps to prevent homelessness for low-income working families who fall behind in their rent. Your tax-deductible support helps to offset expenses such as rent, utilities, and professional case management services for our clients.
“When I found the program, I was in a terrible situation, no place to live, we did not have enough money for rent, and I get a divorce from the kids’ father…we are homeless for a couple of months. When Miss Ruth gave us the keys to the new home and the kids went inside the apartment--we did not know the apartment, one of my kids started to cry, because it was more than we are expecting, basically, like magic we received a home.” ---Shenny
