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 We Do:

We shelter 50 people nightly, serve over 500 meals daily, host 1,000 showers weekly, and provide such support services as food, shelter, case management, counseling, job and life skills training, creative arts workshops, emergency homelessness prevention grants, & permanent supportive housing solutions.

What Our Goal Is:

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

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