More on the Hoboken Homeless Shelter:

Mission Statement:

The Hoboken Shelter’s mission is to be a community partnership that transforms lives by providing meals for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, & services to support people to become housed.

What They Do:
They shelter 50 people nightly, serve 300 meals daily, and provide such support services as food, shelter, case management, counseling, job and life skills training, creative arts workshops, and emergency homelessness prevention grants.

What Their Goal Is:
These services help our homeless guests develop the skills needed to gain employment, achieve independence, and re-integrate into the community.

Their ultimate goal is to end homelessness one person at a time!

How You Can Help:

The Hoboken Homeless Shelter would greatly appreciate your support and donations. It costs them only $2 to serve a nutritious meal, so every little bit really helps!

They are open to receive donations Mondays-Fridays, 9am-3pm, and every night of the week, 5pm-9pm.
