I moved over to Jersey City, NJ from Brooklyn, NY and I felt isolated since being in NYC I had vast rescources for LGBT people living with HIV/AIDS. I was talking to my best friend who moved over to the area proir to my coming and he told me about a wonderful small support group that was being held on thursday evenings at 7pm. I was afraid at first to attend not knowing what to expect but I soon found out that it was like a great small brotherhood. I found myself runnning to get their on time to get a seat because the room was tiny but cozy! HPC does great work for the Hudson County LGBT community and People Living HIV/AIDS giving them a sense of hope, direction, and socail suppot. I know that most Non-profits are flat funded and have no income but this organization works miracles on a shoe string budget! I would recommend their services to any new residents to the LGBT community of Jersey City.
It is very hard to find assistance for Gay and Lesbian cients,especially LGBT teens. Hudson Pride Connections has never failed any of my clients. They are professional to a T and caring. They do a fantastic job. I have received good feedback from the clients that I know go to Hudson Pride Connections.
Hudson Pride Connections is serving the unmet needs of a vital population in Hudson County and the greater NYC area. I'm proud to be associated with this organization because I see it growing in new and exciting ways!
I am consistently inspired and impressed by the work that Hudson Pride Connections does in the LGBT, HIV/AIDS Communities. I know that make a difference with a large and diverse population with the bare minimum of resources and staff. They are an example of what's possible when people pull together to support and uplift each other in times of great need.
This grassroots community center has grown over the last 15 years of service to become a fixture in the Northern New Jersey region in service of the LGBT community. The organization owns the first and only building owned by and for the LGBT community in the state of New Jersey, and has a reputation for incredible social service and exciting programming. I am lucky to have been involved, and even more excited to see the organization keep growing!
