Manna House has been working in Monmouth County for over twenty-seven years providing an intensive transitional housing program for homeless women and children. This program provides safe housing, job training, attainment of further education, and life skills that include everything from cooking, crafts, self esteem to balancing budgets.
We are in desperate need of support to renovate and maintain our transitional housing facility located in Cliffwood Beach that houses up to ten women and all of their children at a time.
It is important to understand that although we are located in Cliffwood Beach, we serve homeless women and their children throughout Monmouth County.
We have over 100 graduates in our program and women who enter our program are expected to complete a minimum of twelve months before reaching the graduate program.
The work we do is so important to the community because by changing the lives of women and children from hopeless to hopeful, and independent, we change the future of our community as a whole.
Please watch our video to find out more and hear some of the women, staff and board members from our program speak about our mission and our need:
