Residential Crisis Center 

929 Atlantic Avenue
Atlantic City, NJ 08401
Our Residential Crisis Center welcomes kids 24-hours-a-day offering a compassionate welcome, a hearty meal, a shower, a fresh set of clothes, a warm bed, and other basic needs and vital social services. The shelter, also offering services for moms with young children, provides a safe haven for youth to live while they stabilize their crises and work on a plan to transition to a stable living environment where they can continue to progress in their life goals.

Rights of Passage 

227 N. South Carolina Avenue
Atlantic City, NJ 08401
Rights of Passage (ROP) is a 12-18 month transitional living program that provides young men and women between 18 and 21 with the chance they need to make a life for themselves away from the street. The program is designed to provide young people with the tools they need in order to become self-sufficient, productive members of society. With the help of staff, mentors and volunteers, Rights of Passage residents are provided with educational and vocational opportunities and the skills needed to live on their own. Resident advisors facilitate life skills workshops on topics such as money management, cooking, building healthy relationships and improving self-esteem. 

Camden Drop-In Center

2113 Federal Street
Camden, NJ 08105
”We don’t wait for the kids to come to us.  We go where they are.  We show them there is an alternative to the streets.”
Our outreach staff, by foot and in vans, search the streets for homeless, runaway and trafficked young people. Our outreach efforts span Cape May, Atlantic, Camden, Gloucester, Cumberland, Burlington and Ocean Counties.  We build relationships with our young people in crisis and offer them guidance and support. We also establish partnerships with community providers to assist youth in referrals for shelter, food, education, vocation, mental health, and medical services.
