Governor Murphy Signs Code Blue Expansion


Gov. Signs Code Blue Expansion

Another legislative victory! Governor Murphy has signed a bill that would allow county homelessness trust funds to be used for Code Blue emergency shelter services. Thank you so much to everyone who signed on to this letter to the governor last month. We're thrilled our efforts were a success and we could not have done it without you! Thank you again and congratulations!
