The Homeless Prevention and Emergency Assistance Programs assist Monmouth County Residents at or below 200% of the federal poverty level with payments towards a security deposit, rental arears, mortgage payment, utility bills, sewer bills or outstanding property taxes.
AHA has partnered with SCAN to provide scholarships for eligible seniors to participate in independent living skills classes which include introductions to computers and the internet, communicating via email and skype, diabetes management and general health and exercise classes.
AHA provides scholarships for afterschool tutoring and mentoring programs from September through June. Likewise, AHA sponsors scholarships for full day summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) programs for eligible youth.
AHA also provides family supportive services such as taxi, bus and train vouchers which provide eligible families with access to public and private transportation, as well as soup kitchens and pantries that serve daily meals to homeless and low income residents of Monmouth County.
