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

The Lat­est News

The DACKKs Group for Sup­port­ive Devel­op­ment raised almost $60,000 at its 12th Annual fundrais­ing event Wine and Food: A Per­fect Pair­ing, held at the lovely Brick House in Wyck­off, NJ. DACKKs Vice Pres­i­dent, Ellen Raf­ferty, chaired the event, which fea­tured a wine tast­ing recep­tion with Silent Auc­tion and 5050 Raf­fle, and a Live Auc­tion fea­tur­ing Rehab items for a prop­erty ren­o­va­tion. See the

Grant Awards

With the help of a $20,436 CDBG grant, the DACKKs Group com­pleted a much needed elec­tri­cal upgrade and ren­o­va­tion of a sixty year old kitchen in one of its prop­er­ties. A sec­ond CDBG grant of $5,825 helped us to replace a thirty year old HVAC unit in one of our con­dos. 

This year, a $28,925 CDBG grant will par­tially cover the ren­o­va­tion of another kitchen and bath­room in a turn of the last cen­tury house. In addi­tion to the CDBG fund­ing, a gen­er­ous dona­tion of $5,000 was made by the Bergen High­lands Ram­sey Char­i­ta­ble Foundation…many thanks, BHR!

We are still await­ing news on our renewal appli­ca­tion for an oper­at­ing grant that helps to cover the expenses of our LINKs properties.
