Adelaide’s Place

2416 Artic Avenue, Atlantic City, NJ 08401
Phone: 609-340-8816

Adelaide's Place has been helping homeless and disenfranchised women throughout the Atlantic City area for over 15 years, evolving from a simple day program in a church basement. We provide a secure environment for women who have nowhere to go during the day. Our participants engage in social interactions and programs which include arts and crafts, are provided with life skill enhancements, a reading room, a nutritious snack and nutrition classes. All are treated with the dignity and respect which they are entitled to as children of God. Our goal is to provide them with supportive services to improve their quality of life.

Adelaide's Place offers a welcoming sanctuary, but with many opportunities such as access to social workers, linkages to health care, services to locate temporary or permanent housing, and much more. Sr. Patty and the team of Volunteers not only help the many women who walk through the door, but also families in the neighborhood who need an occasional hand. This need continues to grow and Adelaide's Place continues to work each day to make people's lives better.
