State Homeless Hotline

New Jersey residents experiencing homelessness can dial 211 for help.

As the State's Homeless Hotline, we work in partnership with county agencies throughout New Jersey in an effort to ensure that those experiencing homelessness have a safe place to stay at night. We also do our best to connect them with local resources in an effort to address the underlying issues related to homelessness. 

Those in need can call us at any time of the day or night, any day of the year.  Services are accessible in different languages for non-English speakers.

If you live in NJ and you are experiencing homelessness, dial 211 or 877-746-5211 (If you are using a rotary dial phone, please dial 1-877-746-5211.) We will connect you with your county’s most appropriate resources.
