Helping his neighborhood during Hurricane Sandy

This week, the spotlight goes to Mathis Sharpless from our building on Gifford Ave in Jersey City. During the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Mathis was contacted by an organization to hand out $100 gift cards to help offset the cost of spoiled food. Without thinking twice, he went door to door and organized a group of his neighbors for them to receive gift cards. By the end of the day, he helped distribute over $30,000 worth of gift cards to his neighborhood.

Little acts of kindness go along way and Mathis showed what it is to think about your neighbors in a  time of need. 

Our Mission: Inspiring Our Neighbors

We provide rental housing for over 1,200 people, and our staff believes that housing is the most fundamental of needs. Almost all of our staff lives in our communities, and each morning we are there as residents embark on their day. We expect our residents to pass on to others the good service, good deeds, and acts of kindness we provide every day. Our staff works hard to inspire our residents so that they can inspire others. Like a pebble dropped into a pond, the staff’s deeds spread across our properties, to our neighbors, down our blocks, and into the entire region.
