Later in 1988, it opened another branch in Jersey City and later opened another one in Neptune in the year 1990. During that period, St. Clare’s Social Services and the Housing Program were started in 1989 and 1993 respectively. In the first two years of operation, the foundation was involved in the provision of caring services for orphaned children.

Much later in 2002, the Academy Street Firehouse was acquired which has aided the foundation to undergo instrumental growth. It has currently purchased 40 units of housing which were renovated and rented to its intended clientele who may own the houses after several years. The mission of this project is to provide resources in order to help children with HIV/AIDS.
