Our mission is to create healthy neighborhoods through development initiatives that cultivate the resources of residents, businesses, government, and the faith-based community, to serve those most vulnerable in our society.


A few recent examples include: Our Emergency Food Pantry celebrated the First Year Anniversary, having provided 5,000 bags of groceries over the year, feeding 1,440 adults and children, so many of whom are Homeless or at serious risk. First week of November, we celebrated the Ribbon Cutting for five brand new Two-Family homes for Middle-Income, First-Time Homebuyers. We doubled the capacity in our RIST program, which provides a safe home and support services for formerly homeless individuals living with severe and persistent Mental Illness.

Target demographics:

JCECDC’s wide range of services target needy individuals and families throughout Jersey City, Hudson County and Northern New Jersey, who are living with or at risk of HIV/AIDS, under-housed, homeless, substance using and/or mentally ill. We also have programs to provide Homeownership Opportunities for First-Time Middle Income Homebuyers.
