Lending a Hand to a Neighbor

Once a month, a Hoboken Grace table is set up outside of ACME supermarket on 7th and Clinton streets, inviting shoppers to drop off purchases for the Hoboken Shelter as they head out to their cars.

At the beginning and end of each semester of Financial Peace University, participants fill out an anonymous questionnaire meant to measure how the class has impacted them over the course of the nine-week program. On average, families and individuals see a $4,000 turnaround in their finances — which might mean debt paid off, money saved, or both. This winter, that number doubled, tripled and quadrupled.
