The Salvation Army of Elizabeth offer a variety of services to the community from Rental and Utilities assistance to shelter nights and hot meals to those in need. The Salvation Army has been serving the City of Elizabeth for over 100 years and our mission is to serve our clients with their basic needs.  

At our Elizabeth Shelter we continue to give not only a place to stay for those in need but we also help them connect to all of the resources we have in our community so they can move into a more permanent place of resident. We help them with finding housing, going back to school or employment and we are able to continue helping our community thanks to our partnership and partial funding from the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) because of their support we will continue doing the most good for our neighbors in the City of Elizabeth.

Please contact our office for case management, referrals and rental assistance at (908)-352-2886
