What is our mission?

New Community was founded in 1968 in Newark, New Jersey, with a simple yet bold mission: To help residents of inner cities improve the quality of their lives to reflect individual God-given dignity and personal achievement.

For nearly five decades, New Community has invested in socially conscious community development that focuses on housing, workforce development, health care and early childhood education. In 2016, New Community broke ground on its latest venture into supportive housing for chronically homeless individuals facing severe mental and behavioral health challenges. Our goal is simple: To serve the most vulnerable members of our community and help residents achieve self-sufficiency.

We value your partnership and thank you for your support.
