Transitioning women and their families from homelessness and dependency to self-sufficiency, stability, and hope.


Manna House

Manna House is a transitional housing program for women and children who would otherwise be homeless. We provide the opportunity for women to move from dependency and homelessness to self sufficiency and hope.

In response to the overwhelming number of families living in motels, leaders of 13 congregations came together in 1987 and dreamed of an interfaith answer that was sorely needed to solve the growing problem of homelessness here in Monmouth County. The population to be served by this group was homeless women with children. These far-sighted leaders founded the corporation of Monmouth Neighborhood Housing. After a huge multi-congregational fund raising effort, grant writing efforts and many legal obstacles, an occupied boarding house was purchased on August 31, 1987 in Cliffwood Beach, NJ and named

Manna House.
