St. Mary  Advocates Inc.  

50 Years of Service to the  Community

Formerly known as the Auxiliary of  St. Mary Hospital  and Hoboken University Medical Center Center

St. Mary Advocates was formerly known as the Hoboken University Medical  Center Auxiliary. When HUMC was sold to a for- profit group in late 2011  the Auxiliary could no longer operate as a charitable organization affiliated with the hospital. It reincorporated  itself as St. Mary Advocates, Inc  a nonprofit charitable organization. Its new name reflected the original name of the organization - the St. Mary Women's Auxiliary - founded in 1966. Our mission is to raise funds for health care and health education
