Let naming you through how we live
become our public creed:
the clearest witness we can give
is meeting human need.

At All Saints, we believe that how we live speaks louder than what we say we believe. As such, our Social and Outreach Ministries help to support our community and the world wide community outside our doors.
The Jubilee Family Life Center serves the children and families on the west side of Hoboken. Opened in April 2003, the Center offers the only after-school and summer safe haven for children in Hoboken's public housing neighborhood. The Center provides quality after-school programming for over 100 students from kindergarten through sixth grade from 3 pm to 7 pm during the school year and all day during the summer and school vacations.
The new Teen Program seeks to ensure that the participating teenagers gain knowledge of career choices and options. Program Coordinator Vanessa Falco believes that "the Jubilee Center provides a safe environment where teens gain guidance, encouragement and exposure to opportunities they might otherwise not have experienced."
All Saints Episcopal Day School is a mission of the Parish to serve the educational needs of families with children from age three through eighth grade. All Saints is an interdenominational school with over 200 students serving children of all faiths since 1985. Middle School Teacher Libby Vino was recently named New Jersey Non-Public Teacher of the Year for 2011.
Hoboken Shelter for the Homeless. At the corner of 3rd and Bloomfield Streets, there is a very special ministry among the homeless, providing an evening meal for 100 people daily and sleeping arrangements for 50 people each night. Organized in 1982 under the leadership of the Hoboken Clergy Coalition, six congregations came together to form this ecumenical partnership ministry. In addition, support, training and education are offered to help these residents return to an independent life in the community. All Saints is a founding member of the Hoboken Shelter.
In Jesus' Name is a food pantry and clothing bank serving the poor in our community under the guidance of founder, April Harris. Organized in 1981, this ecumenical partnership continues to respond to the needs of poor children and their families and the crises they often face at the end of each month as the pantry becomes bare. In Jesus’ Name is located on the campus of The Church of Our Lady of Grace at 411 Clinton Street.
Hoboken Together is our local affiliate of IAF (Industrial Areas Foundation), a national faith-based community organizing effort. Four Hoboken faith communities -- Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, St. Matthew Trinity Lutheran Church, The United Synagogue of Hoboken, and All Saints -- are working together on leadership development, teaching and practicing relational meetings, conducting power analyses of our community and organizing around local, regional and statewide issues.
