Jersey City Homeless & Addiction Resources

Shared by JCPC Park Member: Bayside Park Neighborhood Association

The Bayside Park Neighborhood Association was also featured in Jersey City Digs, Jersey City’s Hidden Gem: The Sociable South Side

We all fall on hard times at least once, but sleeping or camping out in Bayside Park is not a safe option for anyone.

Get assistance instead of being asked to leave the park or risking arrest.

It’s ok to ask for help to get back on your feet!

We know you can do it! Use the resources below…
