They shelter 50 people nightly, serve 530 meals daily, host 1,000 showers weekly, and provide such support services as food, shelter, case management, counseling, job and life skills training, creative arts workshops, and emergency homelessness prevention grants.All proceeds from the event will go to support the Shelter’s mission of transforming lives by providing food, shelter and supportive services. “The proceeds from events like these benefit our homeless guests by helping them develop the skills needed to gain employment, achieve independence, and re-integrate into the community,” said Executive Director of The Hoboken Shelter Jaclyn Cherubini.  “We helped 148 of our guests become housed in 2016 and our ultimate goal is to end homelessness in Hudson County one person at a time.”The fundraiser will feature drink specials, light appetizers, and fun prizes. Admission is a $25 donation at the door. Tickets for the Spring Fever Happy Hour can be purchased on the Hoboken Shelter’s website at www.hobokenshelter.org. ×last_img
