About Concordia Learning Center Jersey City:

St. Joseph’s School for the Blind began in 1891 owned and operated by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace. The school provided an academic program and an enriched extra-curricular program to an average and above average population of students who were blind/visually impaired.

The school was then, as it is now, a non-profit, non-secreatarian agency accepting children of every race, creed and national origin and continues to be the only school for the blind in New Jersey.

Today, St. Joseph’s School for the Blind continues its primary mission to serve individuals who are blind/visually impaired and has expanded service to include individuals with multiple disabilities and preschool disabled from throughout New Jersey.

The school offers a full range of programs and services from birth through adulthood. Our Early Intervention Program for infants/toddlers from birth to 3 years of age provides teams of special educators to teach infants/toddlers in a natural setting how to compensate for any reduced or total lack of vision.

The school also provides a 5-day-a-week education program over a period of ten months per year, with an extended school year program in July and August. The major areas of curriculum emphasis include: New Jersey Core Curriculum, Activities of Daily Living, Pre-Vocational Skills, Communication and Sensory Motor Skills, Orientation and Mobility and Personal/Social Skills. Arts and Crafts, Music, Technology and Community Integration activities are also incorporated into the curriculum as well as Speech, Physical and Occupational therapy services.

In addition to the full-time day program, the school offers a residential program on a five day/four evening per week basis which provides an expanded core curriculum for students and better prepares them for independent living.

To meet the growing need for special services, the school recently added the Realizing Adult Potential (RAP) program, a self-directed day program for adults with special needs. The program promotes independence through life skills training, real life experiences and includes training in personal care, meal prep, vocational/job skills, personal finances and more.

In an effort to better utilize our facility and meet the growing needs of our Jersey City community, a Preschool Program opened in 2009 with the approval of the New Jersey Department of Education. The program currently provides vital services to 105, 3-year-old Jersey City non-disabled residents. The state funded program is one of the highest quality pre-k programs in the nation, offering a developmentally appropriate curriculum. The program is designed to have a significant impact on academic achievement in early and later school years and has additionally provided the opportunity to integrate children with disabilities with non-disabled students. Working together, teachers have designed academic and social activities for the children, which have resulted in positive experiences for all students.

Family Promise of Hudson County Opens Its Doors

Family Promise of Hudson County Opens Its Doors to Serve Homeless Families in the Community :

Family Promise of Hudson County, a new nonprofit providing temporary shelter to homeless families in the community, officially opened its doors. A local affiliate of a national nonprofit, Family Promise works to keep entire homeless families together by relying on places of worship, or host congregations, to provide shelter. All host congregations are currently based in Jersey City and Hoboken, with additional support from congregations in Hoboken and Bayonne.

“There are a number of organizations and programs that provide incredible support for the homeless in Hudson County,” explains Tiffany Kane, Executive Director of Family Promise of Hudson County. “However, there are few offerings for homeless families that allow the entire family to find shelter and services together. Through Family Promise’s unique shelter model, children will be able to remain in their schools, parents can remain at their jobs, and entire families will be able to receive services through our case management and support system.”

Each night, families will stay at one of Family Promise of Hudson County’s host congregations. Each day, they will travel to the Family Promise drop-in center, located at Fountain of Salvation Church in Jersey City. There, families will receive services to ensure they get back on their feet, which will include counseling, connections to local resources (such as health care), and housing assistance.

The community welcomed Family Promise of Hudson County with a formal ribbon cutting ceremony on February 22, 2018, at Fountain of Salvation Church. After remarks from Executive Director Tiffany Kane, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, Hudson County Freeholder Anthony Romano, and Caroline Caulfield, Correspondence Coordinator for U.S. Senator Cory Booker, the ribbon was cut to officially offer services to homeless families.

In front of local community leaders, including elected officials, host and support congregation representatives and other friends, Family Promise of Hudson County announced that CarePoint Health will be its exclusive healthcare partner.

“CarePoint has been actively involved in Hoboken and Jersey City in working to provide health care services to the homeless community, however, families at risk of homelessness do not always have the network or services available to help them,” says Peter Daniels, Chief Operating Officer of CarePoint Health“When we heard about Family Promise and the work they will be doing in the community, we immediately wanted to get involved as health care partners to help reach this often overlooked community.”

For more information on Family Promise of Hudson County, or for ways to get involved with the organization, please visit Displaced or homeless families should contact Garden State Episcopal at (201) 209-9301 or the homeless hotline at 211.

About Family Promise of Hudson County
The mission of Family Promise is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response. Family Promise’s envisions a nation in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future. For more information on Family Promise of Hudson County, please visit

Who We Are: Family Promise of Hudson County is a non-profit that will

help to house homeless families within Hudson County.

What We Do: In addition to providing emergency sheltering, we will also provide case management and connection to resources. Our goal is to help families find sustainable and successful housing solutions.

Why We Do It: Currently, there is no other emergency shelter in Hudson County that houses the whole family. Imagine a single father raising his children and he just can’t make ends meet. Currently, our area has no way to keep them together. A mother raising an adult son with disabilities would be separated because on paper, they are single adults. Family Promise of Hudson County will be able to keep these families together and can work with them to find a sustainable way back on their feet.

What are we fundraising for? Everything from cots, cribs and car seats must be purchased. We will be hiring a full time case manager and case aides to work with families. We will also be providing bus and train tickets as well as school supplies and food for families. The cost is high, but our emergency shelter model that shelters families in places of worship keeps other costs down. If you consider donating or hosting a fundraiser, families in Hudson County will benefit directly. Donations are tax-deductible and may be matched by some places of business! Supporting Family Promise of Hudson County means that you will be helping families find their way from the street to a home of their own.

JCFamilies will be collecting supplies for this shelter in all the upcoming events in Jersey City.
