Director of the Mayor’s Office of Homeless Services for the City of Newark Luis Ulerio toured Harmony House, New Community’s transitional housing facility for homeless families, on June 22. Harmony House Director Yonette Fredericks showed him the private units where families live, which include a private bathroom, bedroom and living space. Fredericks and New Community Director of Community Engagement Richard Cammarieri told Ulerio that families at Harmony House are provided with services to help them find permanent housing, further their education and find employment. Residents are referred to New Community Career & Technical Institute (NCCTI) to complete accredited post-secondary programs. Families are also offered mental health services through Family Service Bureau of Newark (FSB) and physical rehabilitation services at New Community Extended Care Facility. NCCTI, FSB and Extended Care are all next door to Harmony House, allowing for easy access.

I have been homeless for 10 yrs in which I have been in and out of employment. I can home from prison in 2010 and since then have struggle to remain gainfully employed for any type of stretches longer than ten months. I would like to seeking a housing voucher through hardship program or whatever it is that you have going on. My stretch of sleeping on park benches and the path train must come to an end.
KB, I have sent you an email.
