New Community participated in the city of Newark’s Community Financial Empowerment Day. Part of the purpose of the Empowerment Day press conference, held at the first floor rotunda in city hall, was to promote new Financial Opportunity Centers (FOC) that are soon to open around Newark. New Community is opening its FOC inside the location currently known as the NCC Family Resource Success Center, located inside the Pathmark Shopping Center. The new FOC, which will continue to offer services previously provided by the Resource Center, will give low and moderate income residents the tools they need for financial empowerment. That includes financial coaching, employment services, credit counseling, financial literacy, referral to job training at NCC and more. Rodney Brutton, director of NCC Workforce, standing center.
