In 1997, STREETLIGHT MISSION founders, Paul and Karen Yuschak began working with the poor and those struggling from alcohol and drug abuse in Elizabeth, NJ. Karen discusses the StreetLight Mission which is a faith based community outreach center located in the inner city of Elizabeth, New Jersey serving the people of Union County who struggle with poverty, disabilities, physical abuse, substance abuse, and hopelessness. It is their goal to help each person choose steps that lead them to wholeness, becoming productive members of their families and the community. They help people with basic life needs like food, clothing, and housing. To do this and continue to meet the growing needs of the community, they need your help. The 4th Annual Ride/Walk for the Mission gets underway at 1251 Terrill Road, Scotch Plains, NJ this Saturday, May 18th, 8-4 pm. Click here for more info!
