Our programs take into consideration the context in which our members live and grow every day. While the city of Newark has made exponential progress in the areas of preschool enrollments, high school graduation rates, and juvenile arrests, there is still work to be done. Pervasive poverty still persists, with nearly three quarters of Newark’s children living in families who earn too little to pay the rent, buy food, and afford quality childcare. We provide a safe haven where children and their families get the extra support they need in the face of uncertainty to thrive.
