The DACKKs Group for Sup­port­ive Hous­ing Devel­op­ment, a Bergen County, New Jer­sey, char­ity, is ded­i­cated to help­ing the home­less make the tran­si­tion to inde­pen­dent liv­ing. Our mis­sion is sim­ple. With the help of ded­i­cated vol­un­teers and the finan­cial sup­port from gov­ern­ment and foun­da­tion grants, and pri­vate donors, we pur­chase prop­er­ties through­out the Bergen County area , such as con­do­minium units, sin­gle– and multi-​family homes. These units are rented to peo­ple work­ing to over­come home­less­ness and liv­ing with dis­abil­i­ties for thirty per­cent of their income…what­ever their income

Our much needed ren­o­va­tion of a kitchen and a bath­room in a turn of the last cen­tury house is com­plete! With fund­ing from a CDBG grant and a very gen­er­ous dona­tion of $5,000 from the Bergen High­lands Ram­sey Rotary Club, we have cre­ated func­tional spaces in these impor­tant rooms, replac­ing aged appli­ances, cab­i­nets and floor­ing, ensur­ing that these prop­er­ties remain safe and decent for our ten­ants. Thank you, Bergen High­lands Rotar­i­ans!

Fund­ing for our LINKs Project –hous­ing six adults and a child– has been renewed for the 2014 – 2015 project year! This HUD grant pro­vides a 75% reim­burse­ment of our oper­at­ing costs for the four LINKs project prop­er­ties. The DACKKS Group must come up with a 25% match for the total grant of $41,591, in addi­tion to fully fund­ing any expenses above the grant amount. Your gen­er­ous sup­port helps us to main­tain this impor­tant project.
