Many people in the New Brunswick, NJ area are thankful for the help that the nonprofit organization Elijah’s Promise continues to give to the most vulnerable members of the community. This organization harnesses the power of food to help alleviate hunger, change lives, and break the cycle of poverty that afflicts many people in central New Jersey. This organization relies on the support of donors, volunteers, and community partners like Sam Boraie, who serves on the advisory board for Elijah’s Promise.
How They Help
Elijah’s Promise was established in 1989 and through its team of volunteers; it operates a community soup kitchen, catering business, culinary arts school, and a pay-as-you-can café. They also help connect low income families and individuals with health and social services. They take pride in serving over 100,000 meals per year and take unskilled workers who have had no previous training and offer them careers in the food service industry.
Not only is Sam Boraie taking part as an active member of the advisory board of this organization, he is also a true visionary that seeks to help others in the New Brunswick area through his development company, Boraie Development, LLC. This is one of the premier development companies in the North Eastern United States which has a track record for working with developers and property managers to provide more housing options for citizens in New Brunswick.
In an article on PR Newswire reveals that Boraie Development has already developed a plan to completely revitalize the city and through participation and interaction with Elijah’s Promise, Sam Boraie knows exactly what the people of New Brunswick need in terms of revitalization to include the less fortunate. While other developers in New Jersey only focus on high-end projects, Sam has a true heart for everyone in the city which is why Boraie developments include multi-use facilities that will benefit all residents of the city.
Reaching Out to Everyone
Elijah’s Promise created a new initiative with the joint effort of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey to create an action recovery team to help the homeless which goes by the name of HEART.
This is an outreach program that where volunteers drive throughout the New Brunswick area to search for homeless individuals who are in need and require help. By using a direct approach to help the homeless population, more people on the streets can be assisted with shelter, social services, and medical care so that they can change their lives for the better.
More Hope and a More Successful Life
Thanks to Sam Boraie and contributions made by Elijah’s Hope, more people in New Brunswick are given a chance to live a more successful life. It also helps to address the fact that the cost for someone living on the streets and going in and out of jails and shelters is much higher than paying for housing. This is also why Boraie Development has included a plan to provide more affordable housing for people in New Brunswick as part of its revitalization effort.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of Elijah’s Hope and Sam Boraie is one of the many volunteer members of this successful organization that truly makes a difference. In addition, as a visionary for the revitalization of New Brunswick and Central New Jersey, Sam Boraie and his development company is truly making a difference in the lives of many people.
