For The Greater Hood is a dedicated non-profit organization that believes individuals and families without a home should still be treated with dignity and respect. Several times a year, we open up pop-up shops in the tri-state area where guests are treated to an enjoyable and respectful shopping experience and given a branded gift card for use as a payment method.

I wanted to say that over the course of almost 20 years working in the non-profit sector, I’ve never seen such an amazing group of volunteers. People came to serve with their whole hearts and really made clients feel loved and like they mattered. I think it is not only a testament to them knowing the love of Jesus but to the culture of service, excellence, and ownership that For the Greater Hood instills in all that it does. Over the course of 12 hours, I did not hear a single complaint from a volunteer. In general, we have difficulty getting volunteers to Paterson, let alone serve with compassion and dedication.

This beautiful woman was getting married the following Monday and found her wedding dress at the pop-up shop. She was so thrilled that she asked if she could get a few “For The Greater Hood” hoodies for her bridesmaids to wear for the wedding party.
