Keith Moore brings to the TEAM, knowledge of Government, Community, Small Business, and the historical challenges associated with Government meeting socio economic goals.
In 1996, Keith Moore received the Martin Luther King Jr Community Service Award by the National Association of Advancement for Colored People. As a result of assessing the problems that caused the community of Asbury Park New Jersey to have the highest rate of unemployment, crime rates, and incidents of drug convictions in Monmouth County, Keith decided to convert one of his family owned health care facilities into a drug and alcohol halfway house for men and women. This first time ever conversion of a state licensed boarding home to a licensed Half way house rapidly became a part of the solution to reduce the number of homeless addicts residing in the city. EXODUS House became a seven year success for human restoration, and also became the catalyst that changed public policy at the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, and Department of Health. The approval to convert a class C boarding home into a licensed residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility initiated changes in regulations for the boarding home industry. Keith’s command of public policy has benefited community, business and government, and empowered those most vulnerable, challenged and least financed.
Keith as a result of his success in the waterfront community of Asbury Park, became a frequent guest on NJN Network and Comcast, and was characterized as a community leader, and one who believed in the development of innovative approaches to community development. EXODUS House offered drug and alcohol rehabilitation services to addicted men and women for six months with housing, education, job training, and a second chance at a productive life. In 1997, the State of New Jersey agreed to purchase the facility located one block from the Asbury Park beach. Once the EXODUS House was purchased, Keith was appointed in 1997 by the Governor of New Jersey and Secretary of Commerce to the position of Account Executive to the New Jersey Commerce & Economic Growth Commission. His appointment led to a position as Director of Public Affairs and Community Relations working directly for Governor Christie Todd Whitman in the Governor’s Camden New Jersey office helping to advance the allocation of over 250 million dollars of revitalization funds into the city of Camden. (Second poorest city in the country).
