For millions of children in the U.S., that story may be filled with the hardships of living in poverty. For some children, this could be the first time they've ever had a special Christmas gift just for them.
For the past 10 years, with support from community partners, SHA has organized an annual Christmas event in Paterson New Jersey. Every child that attends receives a wrapped gift and lots of other goodies. Event volunteers help to make this celebration a very special and memorable occasion.
SHA cares about more than just helping children in poverty gain access to basic needs. They also understand the importance of providing the opportunity to learn life skills that will help sustain their lives as they grow.
SHA is committed to meeting the needs of inner-city youth and their families lining in the 4th Ward of Paterson, NJ through a variety of activities and curriculum. Their ultimate goal is to promote personal development, spiritual renewal and community restoration with a gospel focus.
