YORK STREET PROJECT
89 York Street
Jersey City, NJ 07302
The mission of York Street Project is to weave innovative programs that shelter, feed, educate, and promote the healing and independence of persons in need, especially women and their children.
Through its four interrelated programs, York Street Project addresses the highly-visible factors of education, housing, and childcare that block women from creating self-fulfilled, self-sufficient lives, as well as the less visible factors such as healing the hidden damage that the cycle of poverty exacts. York Street Project helps these brave women unlearn the lessons of hopelessness and helplessness, restore destroyed self-esteem, and address the developmental delays in their children that result from living in poverty.
