Thanks to the generosity of the founding women and of so many other individuals and businesses throughout the past 216 years, Newark Day Center has continued tirelessly to serve the community.
We are now reaching out to our past donors and the business community for much-needed support with a Benefit Gala celebrating our 216 years of service and honoring the legacy of the late Trish Morris-Yamba, who served as the Executive Director for the Center and for the Fresh Air Fund for 23 years.
A 501(c)(3) non-profit, Newark Day Center is the oldest social services agency in New Jersey, and the third oldest in the United States. While some of the services have changed over the years to meet the needs of the times--including establishing the Fresh Air Fund--the mission of Newark Day Center remains the same as it was in 1803: to provide "some means for caring for the poor and distressed persons" of Newark. With such established roots producing new and ongoing outreach, Newark Day Center refers to itself as "an old tree bearing new fruit."
Come back soon for more details.
We hope you can attend and support us!
