A Gala Event in Old Tappan to Benefit Zoe’s Place

Over 120 guests gathered on October 24, 2010 at the home of Glen and Donna Lumia in Old Tappan to learn about Zoe’s Place, a Bergen County based non-profit organization providing a home and support services to Bergen County pregnant teens, homeless teen mothers and their babies. Zoe’s Place was created in 2003 and their mission is to provide safe, supervised housing as well as education and job skills as support services that will guide these young women into self-sufficiency.

In an unprecedented collaboration between Zoe’s Place, Habitat for Humanity and Glen Lumia, President of Creative Design Construction & Remodeling as well as many other dedicated volunteers, the first home of its kind is being built in Bergen County which will house these young teens and their babies. Zoe’s Place is enthusiastically awaiting the opening of this home in early 2011.

“We are behind this because we believe in the mission of Zoe’s Place,” stated Glen Lumia, “We are grateful for the funds raised through many generous supporters in our community, thus making a meaningful and productive life a reality for some of Bergen County’s young women.”
