Part of the national Community Action Partnership, the Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation (BEOF) provides a wide range of services to assist low-income, handicapped, and elderly residents of Bayonne, N.J., and Hudson County. We promote self-sufficiency through programs that meet the social, economic, educational, and training needs of our community, including Head Start, housing and utility assistance, and meal services.

In addition to our many in-house services, we serve as a community hub for many state and federal initiatives. This vast network allows us to assist even those individuals who do not qualify for BEOF programs, by providing guidance and referrals.

BEOF has served more than 73,000 clients since our founding in 1965. As a result of our success in serving Bayonne residents, we expanded a number of programs in 2015 to all of Hudson County and continue to enhance our service offerings.
