Faith Foundation,  which was operating out of a storefront in Hackensack took in people no one else wanted. Their clients were the homeless, mentally ill patients without medication, alcoholics and drug addicts.

Robin Reilly and  her  volunteer staff  has tried to find food, housing, transportation, medication and mental health programs for these people in need for over a decade.
