Help a Homeless Professional Man Get Through a Difficult Time

Jose is an outgoing, people-person, and a loving father and grandfather. In October 2010, Jose lost his job as a facilities manager with a brokerage firm. No longer able to pay his rent, he was forced to move into St. Lucy�s Shelter. He thanks God that St. Lucy�s exists and its caring staff is helping him cope with this difficult time with dignity

St. Lucy�s Shelter was founded 25 years ago and is now the largest shelter for homeless men and women in Hudson County. It is a supervised 24-hour, seven-day-a-week, year-round emergency shelter facility for single women and men offering emergency housing and food. Clients are offered a 45-day stay. After admission, clients meet with staff to assess their current situation. Once their needs are determined, clients are referred to one or more of the following services: welfare, SSI, unemployment, job training and job search, and mental-health/addiction-treatment programs.
