And the Honorees are…

Dream Builder Award


Homeless Solutions is proud to honor the The Hampshire Companies with our Dream Builder Award. They stepped up as our first corporate FAN (Family Angel Network) Sponsor, which is a new opportunity to sponsor an apartment annually at our Transitional Housing Program (THP). Our FANs help to subsidize rent, childcare, and case management services while interacting directly with the family living in the sponsored apartment throughout their journey at THP and into permanent housing.

We’re excited to spotlight this new opportunity. The Hampshire Companies’ support goes beyond the financial commitment, they’ve given this 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 Principal at NK Architects. We are thankful for all of his efforts spearheading our Young Professionals Advisory Council and his hard work to increase HSI’s community involvement.
