Kim is a single woman. She worked as a research scientist at a prominent New Jersey medical center. Unfortunately, she was injured. During her recovery, she moved into a less expensive apartment and began working as the building�s superintendent. She was then able to live rent free. Unfortunately, the owner of the building soon wanted to rent the apartment Kim was in. Not able to pay the $1,240 a month in rent, Kim was asked to leave. She then moved into St. Lucy�s Shelter.
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.
