Volunteers From Bridges Outreach Host Back-To-School Picnic For Harmony House Families Post author:Michelle Lang Post published:October 27, 2014 Post category:Harmony House / Latest News Post comments:0 Comments A group of teens volunteering with a program called Teens Tackle Homelessness spent an afternoon with the children of New Community Harmony House as they prepared to start school this fall. Harmony House is NCC’s transitional housing facility for homeless families and is located at 278 South Orange Ave. in Newark. Homeless families receive support services including case management and relocation to permanent housing. The volunteers, who came with the Summit based group, Bridges Outreach, hosted a picnic, played games and distributed backpacks to Harmony House families. Newark resident Krystle Crawford recently became homeless and arrived at Harmony House with her two sons, ages 4 and 18 months. She said she appreciated the volunteers visiting and organizing activities for the children at the shelter. “I think it’s good, it gives them something to do,” Crawford said.
