Newark Emergency Services for Families (NESF) acknowledged World Homeless Day on Friday, Oct. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Lincoln Park, Downtown Newark. The annual event was coordinated by NESF and co-sponsored by Newark Central Ward Councilwoman LaMonica McIver.
Among the NESF partners was New Community Harmony House and Family Service Bureau (FSB). Yonette Fredericks, Director of Harmony House, was present to inform the community about Harmony House, NCC’s transitional housing for homeless families, and about the FSB Hope and Healing Program for COVID-19 resources.
Fredericks had a table loaded with housing resources and socks for individuals and families who were interested. “The event went very well,” said Fredericks.
