Stop the Bleed
SHIP clients are the homeless, working poor families, and individuals in Somerset County Regions who are not able to obtain assistance from government or other private agencies, and are therefore denied an opportunity to receive the basic humane assistance they need and deserve. Clients coming to SHIP include many that suffer from substance abuse dependency, HIV/AIDS, mental health issues, the homeless and near homeless working poor, hunger or isolation. During the February SCSNA meetings we have made a positive impact on the less fortunate in our community by donating socks.
