JERSEY CITY — A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Thursday at the Fountain of Salvation Church on Communipaw Avenue as Family Promise Hudson County opened a new location.

Family Promise Hudson County is part of a national organization that works to keep families together by relying on places of worship to provide temporary housing.

"There's such a need for helping the homeless families, and we're just one of the resources that will help, and are going to be able to provide that service for the families or the homeless in our area," said Tiffany Kane, the executive director of Family Promises.

The mayor says the hope is that the new location will ensure homeless families get back on their feet without the risk of being separated.
