SHIP, the Samaritan Homeless Interim Program, began operations on March 5, 1984 in response to the unheeded cry of the many women, children and men who are in desperate need of emergency housing and associated services.  

SHIP is a faith based, interfaith and community funded, assisted and supported, grassroots organization.

SHIP Overview

At SHIP we create programs and services that increase the Somerset County and surrounding regions capacity to respond to the needs of the poor and working poor.

SINCE MARCH 5, 1984 WE HAVE SERVED 0VER 100,000 PEOPLE

Clients coming to SHIP are in desperate need of help.  Many are the working poor.   They include those that suffer from homelessness or being near homeless.  Many are hungry or suffer from substance abuse dependency, HIV/AIDS, mental health issues, or neglect and isolation. 

Services are tailored to each individual's need and vary in duration according to each individual or families situation.  SHIP provides this unique population with critically needed emergency interim services.  These services may include advocacy, emergency interim housing, interim counseling, and support services, that greatly enhance their chances of regaining their self-sufficiency again. SHIP is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the poor.  Clients are eligible to apply for all of SHIP's Programs and Services. 

THERE ARE NO FEES CHARGED FOR SERVICES.
