Harmony House Children Enjoy Educational Hiking Trip

Children who live in Harmony House, New Community’s transitional housing facility for homeless families, had the opportunity to go on an educational hike at the South Mountain Reservation in South Orange on Oct. 29 thanks to a partnership with Newark Academy in Livingston. Newark Academy Senior Classman Will Crall and Director of Communication Sarah Fischer collaborated with New Community Harmony House Director Yonette Fredericks to arrange for the children of Harmony House to have an opportunity to explore nature while being educated about the various species of plants at the South Mountain Reservation. Harmony House children and staff were joined by Crall, Alexandra Mahoney and several other students of Newark Academy. Photos courtesy of Alexandra Mahoney.
