The network of Ocean County churches provides a safe haven for families who have lost their homes and aids them in their search for affordable housing. St. Andrew UMC is one of the 12 host congregations who provide temporary housing and food until their search is successful. Additional congregations provide support for the host sites. The Network has a center in Toms River where family members can take showers and do laundry, as well as receive support services.
