The All Saints Community Service and Development Corporation (ASCSDC) is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to equip low income children and families with the tools needed to overcome the many barriers they face and to thrive in all aspects of life. The ASCSDC offers a range of programs and services to families living in Hoboken through The Jubilee Center of Hoboken, and also operates two programs in Union City: The Palisades Family Success Center and La Puerta Abierta.
The Jubilee Center (JC) is an afterschool and summer program established in 2003 to provide a safe and creative environment for children from Hoboken’s public housing neighborhoods that broadens their experiences and expands their potential to excel in life. The center provides academic support, mentoring, an arts curriculum, field trips, a nutritious meal each evening, and sports/fitness programs five days/week throughout the school year. In addition, ASCSDC offers a summer camp that includes a wide range of activities (July-August). JC serves about 100 children, 6 to 13 years of age, and their families. Most children attend public school in Hoboken. More than 80% of Center’s funding comes from private donations. This program is where the Executive Director will spend a majority of his or her time.
The Palisades Family Success Center (FSC), in Union City, provides a home-like environment where families can receive information and referrals that connect them to resources in the community. Some of the programs offered at FSC include economic self-sufficiency, and job readiness assistance, help accessing public housing, parent education, and workshops on nutrition, fitness, budgeting and other life skills. FSC serves more than 500 families each year. FSC is part of a statewide network of Family Success Centers funded by the NJ Department of Children and Families.
La Puerta Abierta (LPA) is an afterschool program in Union City serving children from low-income Hispanic families. LPA provides a range of after-school services including help with homework, reading support, fitness and recreational activities, and arts, crafts and music programs. Children are provided with a nutritional snack each day. LPA operates Monday through Friday from 3 PM-6 PM and serves about 45 children and their families. LPA is also funded by the NJ Department of Children and Families.
ASCSDC/Jubilee Center has an annual total budget of approximately $1,000,000, and is supported by three program directors (JC, LPA, and FSC) and an additional staff of 10, mostly part-time personnel, along with approximately 10 dedicated volunteers at any given time. The ASCSDC Board of Trustees serves to provide fiduciary oversight and assist with fundraising for the organization.
