Breaking The Cycle Of Homelessness

Our housing programs provide a safe place for veterans to address the issues that led to their homelessness and provide them with the resources for a successful recovery and the skills to overcome poverty and despair.

Hope for Veterans® is a 95-bed transitional housing program for homeless veterans.

Opened in 2004 as the largest and most comprehensive program for homeless veterans in New Jersey, Hope for Veterans has received national acclaim for succeeding in helping more than 520 veterans who had fallen upon hard times. The goal of Hope for Veterans® is to provide a safe, supportive environment where veterans can sustain their recovery and start on the path to rebuild their lives.
