The Hoboken Shelter relies on the generous support of many individuals to provide food, shelter, counseling, skill-building workshops, and creative expression classes to those who are homeless.
Please help us fulfill our mission of being a community partnership that transforms lives by providing meals for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, & services to support people to become housed.
If you have any questions, please call the Shelter at 201-656-5069.
Donate to our GoFundMe Campaign!
We have a GoFundMe Campaign to help the Hoboken Shelter. We need your help to fight Covid-19’s impact on the most vulnerable in our community. This pandemic will undoubtedly most harshly affect the homeless and poor. The Shelter is in a battle to keep the homeless from getting sick and dying. Due to the cancellation of our fundraiser we need to make up lost revenue and be prepared to staff staggered lunches and dinners.

Corporate Matching Gift
When you make a matching gift, you can double or triple the impact of your contribution!
Here’s how to do it:
- Find out if your employer will match your gift by checking your company’s website or contact your company’s Personnel Manager or Matching Gifts Program Officer. Below is a list of some major corporations that match employee contributions, but there are many more, so make sure you ask!
- If your employer matches employee contributions, request a matching gift form, fill it out and send it to The Hoboken Shelter. You can send the matching gift form in with your donation or at any time thereafter. This can also be emailed to Executive.Director@hobokenshelter.org.
- We will complete our portion of the matching gift form and return it to your employer. We can also process it as directed on EasyMatch.com.
- The matching funds will be sent directly to us.
- Your contribution and your employer’s matching contribution make a big difference in the lives of the homeless.
For more information about Matching Gifts, please contact Moss Allen at 201-656-5069.
Note: Your employer may also match the time you volunteer with a monetary contribution. JP Morgan Chase and John Wiley are 2 large employers that do this – check with your Volunteer Programs Office or Personnel Manager.

Bequests – Gifts Made Through Your Will or Living Trust
To make a donation that will impact the lives of the homeless for years to come, you can contribute through a will, trusts, or life insurance gifts. A bequest may take several forms. It can be a specific sum, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate after expenses and gifts to loved ones. Living trusts are a popular choice because the terms of a living trust, unlike a will, can be put into effect immediately upon your death, bypassing probate and keeping the terms private. In certain cases of larger estates, a bequest to charity may reduce the value of the estate enough to minimize or eliminate the estate tax.
