St. Lucy's Emergency Shelter

St. Lucy's Emergency Shelter is a supervised 24-hour, 7-day-a-week, year-round emergency shelter facility for single women and men offering emergency housing and food for those in need. St. Lucy's offers an array of services including case management and substance abuse treatment services.

St. Lucy's Emergency Shelter accepts Hudson County homeless men or women over the age of 18. Housing up to 80 Case-Managed beds and 45 Outreach/Walk-in beds, for a total of 125 beds, the shelter provides three meals a day, clothing and outreach services for unsheltered individuals. St. Lucy's also offers showers and has a pantry program for individuals in the community who are not seeking shelter.

The program also works closely with other programs and agencies to provide mental health and Veterans Services. Upon intake, clients meet with clinical 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, education and mental health and addiction-treatment programs. All clients are referred to the Hudson County Division of Social Services and Garden State Episcopal Coordinated Re-Entry Housing Program for permanent housing placement.
