Caring Medical Team To NCC Founder's Rescue

Three Doctors, Plus NCC's Nursing Director, Call Successful Medical Procedure A 'Miracle'

Each day, New Community Director of Nursing Veronica Onwunaka changes a bandage that protects the left foot of NCC Founder Monsignor William J. Linder.

It's not an elaborate process but it requires at least two sets of hands, a watchful eye and the utmost attention given to complete cleanliness.

Wearing latex gloves, Onwunaka carefully unwraps several sponges, pads, gauze and bandages. She snips off the old bandage and cleanses the now recovering foot before applying a new bandage, with the help of another nursing home staff.


NCC Shines In Commitment To Helping House Veterans

Madge Wilson's phone is constantly ringing.

Starting about four years ago, a growing number of those calls to Wilson, NCC board member and outreach coordinator, sought help for military veterans who were about to become homeless.

Since then, New Community has grown in its commitment to house vets like Nathaniel Lawrence.

A Vietnam-era veteran, Lawrence, now 58, resides at New Community Associates, a senior and disabled adult complex at 180 South Orange Ave. in Newark.


Climbing Higher, Former NCC Student Forges Successful Career Path

It's been quite a journey for Wanda Rodriguez to get to where she is now.

And she hasn't got plans to stop anytime soon.

Rodriguez is currently in the process of purchasing her first house. In January, she will enroll at Rutgers-Newark to pursue a master's degree in social work—a goal that she's been pursuing, but has eluded her, for a few years. Her classes will begin in January of 2016.

"If you really want to pursue something, it's a matter of determination," said Rodriguez, 32.
