EMERGENCY SHELTER For the newly homeless. When a services-qualified family becomes homeless in Burlington County, shelter is provided in area motels. Sometimes there is a brief gap in coverage for such clients, for any of a variety of reasons. The Center is able to help such people with vouchers for short period of shelter in participating motels. We also provide emergency short term shelter in motels for other persons, depending on their circumstances. Code Blue During the winter, when weather conditions reach a point that is deemed to be potentially life-threatening to people living outside, the Burlington County Board of Health activates Code Blue. Persons at risk are contacted via outreach teams or are identified through EMS or law enforcement personnel and invited to take shelter indoors.First Baptist Church of Browns Mills hosts our Code Blue shelter for up to 14 adults. Guests eat dinner and spend the night on site and return to the Center for breakfast, lunch, an opportunity to take a shower and change clothes. We use these crucial encounters as opportunities to build relationships with our guests and lead them to the feet of Jesus. Homelessness prevention The Center provides assistance with rent or mortgage payments in times of crisis, in accordance with state and federal guidelines. Several grants help us with these services, as does support from individuals and churches.We also assist tenants and homeowners who fall behind in utilities payments by negotiations and financial assistance. New Jersey Shares is a vital part of this work.
