Emergency Assistance Program

We pay bills to assist families or individuals in the Newark Area who are in need of immediate financial help.  Because of our timely aid, these people were not without shelter nor forced to live in unlit or unheated homes nor denied other critical needs, including utilities, rent, mortgage payment, motel, prescription medicines, bedding and bus tickets.   Almost all of our clients are referred to us by caseworkers at the Hudson State Service Center. They determine the need of families and their inability to get sufficient aid elsewhere.
