Change is only one lap away!

Sophie Braun, our longtime friend and supporter, is spearheading Homefirst’s third Annual Swim-a-thon fundraising event.  Honored as a Homefirst Hero in 2017, Sophie created the Make a Splash event by combining her love of swimming with the desire to help people in the community.  This remarkable young woman rallied her teammates, coach and members of the Jewish Community Center of Central NJ who continue to support this successful event.  Since she was little, her family taught her the importance of giving back.  Sophie tells us, that what struck her about Homefirst is that they provide a way for families in need of housing to get their very own homes. “Having a house to call your own is something that many people really take for granted.  By helping people find homes, it provides a foundation for success and stability in other areas of life.  I feel very fortunate to have found an organization (Homefirst) that is working to provide these solutions.”
