HABcore provides homeless families, veterans, and individuals with special needs with housing, meals, and nurturing support.

Our Mission

HABcore, Inc., by providing permanent housing and individualized support, helps homeless veterans, families with children, and individuals with special needs move through crisis to stability, giving them the opportunity to improve their lives.

Currently we provide a safe home for approximately 260 people, including 47 families that were previously homeless. According to the 2017 Point in Time Count, there are 332 homeless households in Monmouth and Ocean counties including 179 children under the age of 18. For almost 30 years, HABcore has been on the front lines of this issue and has been expanding to meet the growing needs of the most vulnerable in our community.

What We Have Achieved

HABcore believes in specific, measurable outcomes. It is a priority for HABcore to ensure we are making an impact in our residents’ lives by providing supportive services through our team of licensed social workers to all those who are housed in our apartments. Our residents can achieve success when resources are made available through these supportive services.

  • 95% of all residents remained in permanent housing for more than 1 year; 83% for 3 years; 70% for 5 years
  • 80% of our departing boarding home residents over the last 10 years have done on to live in a more independent setting or family reunification.
  • 96% of participating adults maintained or increased their total income.
