19th Annual Dream Builders’ Bash


Our 19th Annual Dream Builders’ Bash is taking place on Friday, March 1, 2019. Over 350 community-minded attendees will come together at Westin Governor Morris in Morristown to enjoy an evening of cocktails, dinner, dancing, a wine pull, raffles, and a silent & live auction. But, to most, the memorable portion of the evening is when a current or former shelter guest stands before the crowd to share their personal story.

And the Honorees are…

Dream Builder Award


Homeless Solutions is proud to honor the The Hampshire Companies with our Dream Builder Award. They have stepped up as our inaugural FAN (Family Angel Network) Corporate Sponsor. As a FAN, they are sponsoring an apartment in our Transitional Housing Program and providing support to the family residing there for one year. Their support goes beyond the financial commitment. They’ve given the family the security of knowing they have an extended support system beyond our staff.


Mary E. Van Kirk Volunteer Spirit Award


Mary spent her life thinking of others and worked vigorously and enthusiastically to support the mission of Homeless Solutions. The Dream Builders’ Bash was a particularly important event to her. In Mary’s honor, we present a Volunteer Spirit Award to someone that embodies the same passion and commitment to HSI as she did. This year we are we are thrilled to present the award to Andrew Lewis. He lives in Morristown and is an Associate Principle at NK Architect. We are thankful for all of his efforts spearheading our Young Professional Advisory Council and his hard work to increase HSI’s community involvement.
