Help a Homeless Professional Woman Get Through a Difficult Time

Kerrie is a single woman. For years she worked as a telemarketer for a company she helped found. The weak economy caused her business to go under. With no steady income, she was unable to pay her rent. As a result, she was evicted. Now Kerrie is a resident of St. Lucy�s, and as Kerrie puts it, "thankfully so."

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.
