Food, Furniture, Diapers, Etc. 

I need help with food and basic necessities.

HomeFront can help your family with everything it takes to make a house a home – food, furniture, appliances and household items, clothing, groceries (non-food), back-to-school, and holiday essentials.  For families living in motels who are homeless, HomeFront also has a new meal delivery program called “Double Helpings.” 

During the COVID-19 crisis, our service hours and operations have changed. All available client support services will be accessible by phone to limit in-person visits and our Front Desk and Furnish the Future programs are closed. To reach HomeFront for help, please call 609-989-9417. Thank you for understanding!

Food, Diapers & Other Groceries

HomeFront operates three food/grocery pantries. Families who have enrolled are welcome to visit once every 30 days to receive a bag of healthy food that will feed a family of four for one week.  Diapers, baby wipes, baby formula, feminine hygiene and personal hygiene products are also available.

HomeFront clients are welcome to visit our food pantry once every 30 days and receive a week’s worth of groceries that will feed a family of four.

This service is available at the first of each school year and anytime your child starts at new school.

Thanksgiving Baskets

The Thanksgiving holiday is especially important as it is a time when families come together and enjoy a home-cooked meal.  To ensure our families have all the ingredients to enjoy a traditional meal made at home, we provide food baskets filled with items such as stuffing, string beans, potatoes, cranberry sauce and a gift certificate for a fresh turkey. We also try to make sure you have enough food for the following week.

To request a basket, (609) 989-9417 ext 101 and ask how do you sign up or email us at:

Holiday Gifts - Christmas Wishes

We ensure that every child has the chance to feel special during this holiday season. Through a carefully orchestrated effort that begins in late November, we ask you for information about each of your children and shop for two gifts for you to give them during the holidays. With their first name, age, gender, size and top gift wishes, we are ready to start preparing to make their holidays special.
