We put housing first for our clients and their families.

Since 1991, the Hudson County Housing Resource Center has prevented homelessness by providing direct services to low-income Hudson County residents. Our flagship program, Cornerstone, provides direct tenant-based rental assistance to 85 low-income, disabled, Hudson County residents and their families.


Jersey City resident Tatiana has been our client for 5 years. She works part-time at a museum as an event associate. Before HRC's tenant-based rental assistance, she was living off of social security and struggled to make ends meet:

 "I had a one bedroom apartment. My illness made it difficult for me to keep a job, and my social security checks did not cover the cost of rent and other basic bills. On top of that, as a trans woman, employers hardly gave me a chance no matter how hard I worked. I took whatever means necessary to keep a roof over my head. I began working as an escort and risking my life daily to get by. "

"My stress level was so high that it aggravated my disability and left me in very poor health. It was difficult for me to take care of myself when I knew I could not get by on less than $1000 in social security every month. I learned about HRC through some friends and applied for the rental assistance. I was on the waitlist for five years before I got a call that I had been accepted." 

"I have been through hell because of my disability, but HRC's program has kept me alive. Now I have a sense of sanity. The drop in my stress levels have led to a boost in my immune system, and I am now  at the healthiest I have ever been. On top of that, I am working a consistent job and have finished my GED, so I have a stronger sense of self worth."
