New Community Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary
New Community staff, residents and supporters gathered to celebrate New Community Corporation’s five decades of service and honor Founder Monsignor William J.

Established in the midst of civil unrest in Newark in 1968, New Community was founded by Monsignor William J. Linder and a small group of civic-minded residents.
