There are many ways to serve the community. Our Diaconate works with the ministries listed below. If you see something that interests you, feel free to contact anyone from the Diaconate for more details on how you can get involved.
The Hoboken Shelter
The shelter serves over 200 meals a day and houses 50 people nightly. They provide job-readiness and life-skills training and are involved in homelessness prevention programs. They have also established a permanent supportive housing program.
Redeemer Hoboken serves meals at the Shelter on the 4rth Friday of every month. If your Fellowship Group would like to sign up and/or you would like to learn more, please contact Hilary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Jesus Name
…was founded in 1981 to respond to the needs of the poor in Hoboken and continues as a coordinated effort of love and sharing among religious communities in Hoboken. The Food Pantry and Clothes Closet, hosted by Our Lady of Grace Church, serve hundreds of our neighbors.
Redeemer Hoboken hosts special concerts each year to help raise money and awareness. In the past, Fellowship Groups have helped by donating clothes, food and time. In addition to donations, there many opportunities to get involved at In Jesus’ Name, whether it’s working with kids and teens, delivering groceries or making visits to the elderly and homebound.
Food or clothing donations can be made during scheduled hours listed on the website or by contacting director April Harris at (201) 792-2112.
International Students, Inc. (ISI)
…exists to share Christ’s love with international college students. Redeemer Hoboken volunteers with the local ISI chapter at Stevens College of Technology on the third Friday of each month. During this time we provide a meal, cultivate relationships, and lead small groups.

The Meals Ministry
…is a practical way for us to come alongside each other and be a blessing during both difficult times and times of joy. Volunteers have brought food to those who are sick, recovering from surgery, and welcoming home a new baby, among many other circumstances.

New City Kids Church
…works with children and teens in Jersey City using the arts, learning and leading, to invite children into the whole-life discipleship of Christ. They follow a child in their development from age six to age nineteen, being an advocate, family, friend, and counselor to the child.

The Open Door, ESL Program
…seeks to equip our neighbors with the ability to communicate effectively in English. It provides support for individuals and families.

Individual Help is available. A primary mission of the Diaconate is to help members who are overburdened by difficult circumstances. These may be physical, emotional, spiritual or financial. If you are experiencing such pressures, please contact any member of the Diaconate. If we can’t help you then we will try to find someone who can.
