Help Stop Suffering This Summer


Summer is a dangerous time of year if you are homeless. Increasing temperatures bring the risk of dehydration, heatstroke, and food poisoning. Far too many people have lost their jobs, and many have never been homeless before.

That’s why we must stop the suffering on the streets of Newark. We have to act quickly – and we need your help now.

Would you make a gift to help stop the suffering and change lives this summer?

Here is why your help today is urgently needed:

  • Every summer, our neighbors are suffering from dehydration, heatstroke and food poisoning. We must get them off the streets!
  • The number of unsheltered families has more than tripled in the last year. They need to know there is hope!
  • 24% of homeless New Jerseyans are children. We must keep them safe!
  • 17% of Essex County’s population live in poverty and on the brink of homelessness. They need help right away!

Will you help us meet the urgent challenges of this summer? 

With the help of friends like you, those who turn to us for help will receive nutritious meals, water to keep them hydrated, a shower, safe shelter – and hope for new-life beyond summer. 

Thank you for caring for our neighbors in need this summer!
