On December 1, 2020 we started serving the homeless in our area as a shelter. We exist to provide a daytime and nighttime warming center to give our guests a warm, safe place to stay, from December-April, during the coldest months.  We provide meals, showers and laundry facilities, haircuts, help filling out forms for social services and access to Ocean County Mental Health and Affordable Housing Alliance. We have built lasting relationships and shared in their joy and trials, while always pointing them to Christ.

We have been given the distinction as an official Code Blue facility with the state of New Jersey. We recently received a health certificate from the Ocean County Health Department.

We are also an official Fulfill recipient for meals during Code Blue nights. During the last season, we received donated meals from:

  • Mia’s Rt.37

  • Via Roma III

  • Bubbakoo Burritos

  • Jersey Mike’s 37

  • Plentiful Plates of Ocean County

We had many devoted people who donated meals as well, from our church and other churches. Please support these generous, community-minded restaurants when dining out and tell them “Thank You”

But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his
heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
