When resources permit, SHIP can sometimes assist patrons in ways
beyond a hot meal and a friendly word. In recent years, for example,
SHIP has assisted some patrons wishing to relocate outside New
Jersey to be near family and friends.
SHIP enabled one patron to reconnect with family members and move to
Maryland. In another case SHIP funded a patron’s permanent move to
Connecticut. More recently SHIP financed transportation expenses for
yet another patron who wished to relocate to South Carolina.
Other ways in which SHIP can occasionally offer assistance to its
