New Center for Homeless Individuals Opens in Trenton
On Thursday, April 16th, 2015 the Trenton/Mercer Community launched its next endeavor to help the most vulnerable homeless individuals get off the street and into housing. The Coordinated Entry and Assessment Services (CEAS) Center located at 509 Perry Street next to the Rescue Mission of Trenton, is a collaborative effort between the City of Trenton, Mercer County, the Mercer Alliance to End Homelessness and nonprofit partners. By combining resources, the goal is to assess the needs of homeless individuals and connect them with services to help move them from homelessness into permanent housing as quickly as possible.
||"It's not about opening a building," said Frank Cirillo, executive director of the Mercer Alliance to End Homelessness. "It's about reconnecting people with our community. And it's about bringing them home."
