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.
