Project PAUL (Poor, Alienated, Unemployed, Lonely) was founded in 1980 in Keansburg, NJ. The early work of Project PAUL centered on the establishment of a food pantry, serving approximately 25 local families, and a thrift shop. The project expanded through the early 1980s, adding services and programs to meet the increased needs of the community. In 1985, Project PAUL incorporated and became an independent 501(c)(3) non profit agency, thereby qualifying for government funding.

Project PAUL services qualified people in the Bayshore area of Monmouth County, including Keansburg, Aberdeen, Atlantic Highlands, Fair Haven, Hazlet, Highlands, Holmdel, Keyport, Little Silver, Matawan, Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Rumson, Sea Bright, Shrewsbury and Union Beach. For services outside of these areas, please call 211.
