Emergency Capacity System (ECS)

The Emergency Capacity System (ECS) at CAU provides emergency housing to individuals who are in need. There are two ECS locations – in Roselle and Elizabeth. We can offer housing for up to 8 individuals on an emergency basis. We can support both members who are ambulatory and non-ambulatory. The members can stay with us for 60 days (if ambulatory) or 120 days (if non-ambulatory). Trained staff help members to become medically stabilized and help them find permanent placement or return to their prior placement or family home.
