Mission of the Month
========== May Mission of the Month - The Apostles' House ============
Located in Newark, The Apostles' House started in 1982 through the combined efforts of four churches as an emergency shelter for women and children. Today it continues to serve Essex County as an emergency shelter and has evolved to provide financial assistance and transitional housing for the homeless and women released from prison. The Apostles' House also provides services such as job training skills, social services assistance for childcare and medical care, and other services to empower people to transition to self-sufficiency; over 98% of the those they've helped have made a successful transition to self-sufficiency. The Apostles' House also runs one of the largest food pantries in Essex County serving more than 18,000 people a year.
