Who we are: Covenant House New Jersey (CHNJ) provides sanctuary and support for youth ages 18-21 facing homelessness or human trafficking. We have seven locations across the state: Atlantic City, Newark, Jersey City, Camden, and Asbury Park, and specialized care in Montclair and Elizabeth. Across all our New Jersey sites, we serve about 4,585 youth annually, and all our services are free.
Our programs: Young people experiencing homelessness in Jersey City can access CHNJ’s emergency care through our street outreach program. Our outreach staff travel on foot and in vans to seek out homeless youth where they are known to congregate. We respond to the immediate needs of young people living on the streets and offer them transportation to our residential crisis centers if they wish.
