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.
In addition, the Y sponsors workshops for residents on crucial issues, such as HIV/AIDS, parenting and life skills trainings.
