Each year, The Apostles’ House provides vital services to increasing numbers of people in need of safe shelter, nutritious meals, healthcare, and other services that help them become self-sufficient and confident members of society.
Food Pantry Program
The Food Pantry Program helps to distribute bags of groceries to families and individuals in need. In order to provide this much-needed assistance, The Apostles’ House has developed relationships with churches, food purveyors, and other potential food donors. If you would like additional information about the Food Pantry Program or to find out how you can help arrange food donations, please contact us at (973) 375-9715. The Food Pantry is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
Parent Aide Program
The Parent Aide Program aims to help provide comprehensive services to families who are transitioning from at-risk status to more stable living conditions. Parent Aides work with families identified by the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P) to provide access to needed family services, provide a link to the children’s schools, and teach parenting and other needed skills to enhance family stability.
