Project PAUL was founded in 1980 as a part of the community outreach ministry of St. Ann's Parish, Keansburg, NJ.
Currently, Project PAUL operates the largest food pantry in Monmouth County with distribution to approximately 1,600 individuals a week.
Project PAUL also helps hundreds of families stay in their homes by providing assistance with rent and utilities to qualified families.
Project PAUL's thrift shop is open six days a week and staffed by volunteers. Proceeds from sales go to support our programs. Clothing, household items, and other necessities from the thrift store are also donated to qualifying families.
During the holiday season, Project PAUL coordinates Thanksgiving food and Christmas gift donations.
Educational programs have also become a part of the services Project PAUL offers to the community. Through the Educational Support Program (ESP), single parents are able to receive grants to assist with transportation and other costs as long as they are enrolled in classes at a local college.
Most recently, Project PAUL has instituted a free ESL class for mothers in the community. Child care is provided.
Project PAUL services qualified people in the Bayshore area of Monmouth County, including Keansburg, Aberdeen, Atlantic Highlands, Fair Haven, Hazlet, Highlands, Holmdel, Keyport, Little Silver, Matawan, Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Rumson, Sea Bright, Shrewsbury and Union Beach.
