Charitable Foundation Supports Housing Assistance Agency

Gladstone TavernPARSIPPANY, N.J. — The Investors Savings Bank Foundation, which provides funding to not-for-profit organizations in the communities the bank serves, has announced a grant award to Community Hope, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary.

Community Hope provides a variety of housing and support services to people recovering from mental health issues and substance abuse. The agency, which established the state’s largest program for homeless veterans, serves an average of 300 clients daily. The $500 in unrestricted funds will support Community Hope’s day-to-day activities throughout the region.

“Donors and generous corporate citizens like the Investors Savings Bank Foundation are essential to the pursuit of our mission,” said J. Michael Armstrong, CEO of Community Hope. “We are grateful for their friendship and support.

“Community Hope helps individuals at risk for homelessness gain access to affordable housing and the support services they need to return to society and be successful in their recovery,” said Kevin Cummings, president and CEO of Investors Savings Bank and a member of the Foundation’s board. “We’re glad to play a role in the vital outreach they are doing in Parsippany and the surrounding communities.”
