St. Stephen’s Community House is a hub for advancing self-sufficiency in the community; committed to assisting residents in the Greater Linden area to build community, self-sufficiency and individual well-being. St. Stephen’s strengthens families with social service programs that empower youth through mentoring, tutoring and entrepreneurship.


Their Christmas Care program has been in existence for over 65 years and gives a hand to families during the holiday season who find themselves in a critical position due to situations such as fixed incomes, job lay-offs and/or family illness by providing food baskets to over 6,500 individuals.


Join Besa and St. Stephen's Community House to support individuals and families this holiday season! As a volunteer, we'll work side-by-side with other community volunteers to fill shopping carts with a variety of food that will be packaged and distributed to families.
