Providing a Bridge to Independence


About Us

Who We Are


The Clement House is a two-story, free-standing house on the grounds of St. Clements Church in Matawan, New Jersey, and it provides one family in crisis with a rent-free home for up to 24 months. Clement House also provides an umbrella of opportunities for building skills and self esteem such as education, job training, parenting assistance, and budgeting skills. The families are eventually transitioned into more permanent housing. Our board of trustees is comprised of 11 members representing a cross-section of professional backgrounds; educational, financial, health, and religious. This diversity enables us to serve the families broadly and skillfully. Clement house, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit and 100% of all funds go directly to help per client families.  A number of homes provide for single mothers. Clement house is the only rent-free residents in Central NJ for intact families. Learn more here and here!

How We're Helping


When crisis comes to a family it may take many forms. Whether the burdens are financial, educational, or emotional, there are times when individuals are unable to cope, and the health and viability of the family is threatened. For over a decade, Clement House has been providing resources, building necessary skills, and coming to the rescue of one family at a time. Figuratively we adopt the family and encourage their growth just as we urge them to adopt the house and treat it as if it was their own which helps them achieve an independent life style. Several  of our previous families graduated from Clement House into their own homes while others moved to apartments.
