The mission of Zoe’s Place is to provide safe, supervised housing for pregnant teens and teen moms and their children, and to meet the need for critical education, skills and support services that will enable the teens to become self-sufficient. Zoe’s Place is designed to meet these goals in a supportive, caring environment, drawing on each girl’s strengths so that she may realize her full potential.
Zoe’s Place was founded in 2003 by a group of committed professional women who responded to the need for safe, secure housing and services for this extraordinarily vulnerable group of children. The primary mission is to provide a safe, supervised home and supportive services for homeless pregnant teens, teen mothers and their babies. Through a partnership with Bergen County’s Habitat for Humanity and extensive community support, Zoe's Place opened a home in Garfield in June, 2011, and now it is a true home for 5 teen moms and their children.
