Description: We provide support to individuals and families through programming in six areas: emergency services, workforce development, housing, prisoner re-entry, health, and family development.  With intensive and holistic case management and our referral network, we help resilient individuals and families who face multiple barriers achieve self- sufficiency through earning a livable wage and securing a stable place to live.

Emergency Services
Our homeless Drop-In Center provides a safe and nurturing environment where homeless guests can take showers, receive light meals, wash clothes, use the telephone, access our food and clothing pantry, as well as linkages to emergency shelters and other supportive services.
Our agency has an on-site food and clothing pantry where consumers can receive weather appropriate clothing, Food Assistance Program and food vouchers that helps to alleviate nutritional shortfalls in families that are “food dependent”.
Through our Rapid Re-Housing program eligible individuals and families experiencing homelessness and are living in transitional housing, emergency shelters, on the street or other places not fit for human habitation, can secure permanent housing.

Re-Entry Services
We offer comprehensive re-entry services to the formally incarcerated.  Our program includes long-term goal setting, intensive case management, linkages to in-house services and programs, job readiness programs, housing information, referrals to medical care and other counseling services as well as off-site referrals.
Housing Services
Through our initial screening and assessment process, we provide supportive services to individuals and families experiencing financial hardships, such as; Rental Assistance Program, Security Deposit Assistance and utility assistance.  NJ Shares Program utility assistance program provides assistance with PSE&G bills for residents throughout the State of New Jersey.
