  We have been where some of you will have to go. There is an old saying “We trudge the road to happy destiny!” Our uphill battle, our tragedies, our slow road;sometimes painful road to living a better life makes for abetter fulfilling life. Simply we make mistakes, we fall but we get up.At the end we look back and say: “we made it”. It makes us more grateful for what we have and what we have accomplished. As time goes on we pass our life lessons on to others to make it just a little bit easier.


  Simply what we have, what we went through, we want to pass on what we learned,big or small. This is what we do. This guide has many resources that wehave found out about along our journey! We now pass it along to you. Hopefully you will do the same for someone.


  Thenext few pages have some miscellaneous information, some forms and listings of Organizations that might be of some use to you. Thank you inadvance for taking the time and supporting HRG.-Created by homeless andlow income people, for homeless and low income people, for all of us toenjoy life!

THANK YOU!!!

 I first want to thank church on the green for their generosity; clothing food for the homeless and low income. 

 Lastly,a VERY special thanks to the *PATH Program at CBH care. Especially the path workers  that help the homeless with mental illness. They go a bove and beyond when it comes to helping finding housing, transportation,guidance, and all other resources.

 *PATH located @ 395main streets Hackensack NJ 07601. 201-646-0333. If you are homeless and have a mental illness, call the mand they will set you up with a path worker that will do everything in their power to help fight homelessness and many other issues! THEY ARE A GREAT RESOURCE!!

Remember,if you have any ideas,comments, suggestions or need help with anything that we can work together and fight homelessness, hunger, mental illness,and any other problems WE WANT to hear from you.
