Newark Day Center is a multifaceted, innovative, and pace-setting community agency serving children, youth, adults, and seniors. It was originally founded in 1803 as the Newark Female Charitable Society.


Our mission is to continue our long tradition of training the poor of all ages in the Greater Newark area to help themselves. We provide this help through the following programs:

    • Infant, Toddler,  and Pre-School Programs,
    • Training opportunities for adults,
    • Fresh Air Fund Summer camping experiences for children,
    • Parent Aide Program, and
    • Senior referral services.

We also serve to promote partnerships with other community-based organizations, and we advocate for those who seek our assistance.
