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.
