Good neighbors caring about the health and well-being of those in need for over 90 years.


The Newark Area Welfare Committee (NAWC), an all-volunteer organization, in cooperation with community partners, is committed to helping Newark area families in crisis regain balance by providing them the necessities of life.

NAWC envisions a community where no one goes without food, shelter, heat and the other essentials of life.  

We are committed to being a trusted resource that establishes and supports diverse programs to provide the services our neighbors in crisis need. To meet this challenge we strive to identify new initiatives that will extend our reach and effectiveness.


On Tuesday, March 19, the Newark Area Welfare Committee and four other Delaware organizations benefited from the generosity of Delawareans thanks to WDEL's Feed-A-Friend food drive which raised thousands of dollars for those most in need for the 13th year in a row.


Newark is a great community, one where we work together to help one another! You can continue to do your part by providing support to our neighboards in need. The most significant impact you can make this time of year is to give to NAWC's Annual Appeal.
