To All Friends Of PERC Shelter....

We would like to take this opportunity to let all of our friends know that we here at PERC are taking all precautions to ensure the safety and health of our clients as well as our staff and our dedicated volunteers.

Keeping everyone’s safety in mind, PERC is suspending all volunteer opportunities at this time. 

However, we are still accepting donations. We are in need of all the items that everyone else needs like hand sanitizer, hand soap, paper towels, toilet paper, etc…. If you wish to make a donation, please come to the 111 37th Street entrance and a staff member will collect items at the door.

Our food pantry is by appointment only! Do not come to PERC if you have not received an appointment from us directly.

In these very trying times, our main goal is to keep the shelter operating for all those we serve. We thank you for your continued support and hope that you all remain healthy and safe.


We are now serving 250+ meals a day & sheltering 140+ homeless individuals a night. You can play an active role in our work by donating urgently needed items - order directly from our Amazon wishlist, or drop off at our shelter/soup kitchen entrance at  111 37th Street in Union City any day of the week!

Palisades Emergency Residence Corporation exists to defeat the cycle of poverty, understanding that food and shelter are fundamental human rights. PERC believes that with help, there is hope. We believe that every person deserves dignity, respect and opportunity.

PERC achieves our mission by providing emergency shelter, a day program with access to housing case management and support services, permanent housing for chronically homeless individuals, outreach in the community, a soup kitchen and food pantry.

Since 2013, PERC has been a subsidiary of Garden State Episcopal Community Development Corporation, a non-denominational, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to create healthy neighborhoods in the Hudson County region through community development initiatives that cultivate the resources of residents, businesses, government and the faith-based community in serving those most vulnerable in our society. Our shared goal is to acheive safe, secure, permanent housing for all.
