EMERGENCY SERVICES AT THE NEWARK Y

Our mission is to provide a safe and supportive residential program, offering a range of programs and referrals to sustain individuals and keep families strong during periods of crisis. Our vision is to see our residents thrive in safe,

long-term housing, and receive all the support they need as they work toward their goals.

The Newark Y Emergency Residence Program is one of the most-trusted shelters in Essex County, with 300 beds for individuals and

families. Accommodations include private rooms for families, as well as community dining areas, and laundry facilities.

The Emergency Residence Program offers case management and services to all of our clients, including:

  • Initial assessment
  • Crisis intervention
  • Advocacy
  • Counseling
  • Referrals for substance abuse or mental health services
  • Employment assistance
  • Housing search support
