Remembering Bob Curvin, Founding NCC Board Member, 'Loyal Son Of Newark'

Bob Curvin enjoyed a good challenge, which was why he possessed such a love for Newark.

He cared deeply for his city—its neighborhoods, political power structure and progress as a postindustrial city—and dedicated his life as a civil rights leader towards the cause of social justice.

As a founding board member of New Community, Curvin crossed paths in the early 1960s with Monsignor William J. Linder, founder and current board chairman of NCC, and continued to be an enthusiastic supporter and friend of the agency. Curvin passed away on Sept. 29, 2015 at
age 81.


NCC Celebrates Annual Festival, Brings Community Together

It was a perfectly crisp autumn day.

Green, white and yellow balloons danced in the breeze along South Orange Avenue and Hayes Street in Newark, a corner that was transformed into a one-day street festival that brought together residents of the neighborhood and New Community staff.

Hosted by New Community, the 32nd Annual Street Festival was a fun-filled occasion for community members—from children to seniors—who enjoyed music, entertainment and food in a family-friendly environment. Youth of all ages participated in activities offered in the Kids Zone and adults 21 and up enjoyed the beer garden.

Junk Food, Slims Down

The bagginess of his work attire speaks volumes.

But Dr. Nicholas Guittari isn't going on a shopping spree for new, more fitted clothes just yet. He still believes he can shed a few more pounds, for the sake of his health.

Guittari, New Community's medical director, recently underwent a visible transformation after making changes to his daily diet and exercise habits.
