Honoring Former NCC President Art Wilson's Legacy

Art Wilson wore many hats—principal, father-figure, disciplinarian and boss.

But in each of his roles, Wilson preferred not to be heavy-handed. He made himself endlessly available to the staff of New Community while he served as NCC's board president for 38 years.

As principal of St. Rose of Lima School in Newark, Wilson disciplined his most rambunctious students by sternly lecturing them or keeping a watchful eye over their every move during Saturday detention. His stance was firm, but his motive was always love, according to those who knew Wilson at NCC.


TV Star Wendy Williams Hosts Dinner For NCC Harmony House

Wendy Williams knows how to make a big entrance.

The celebrity talk show host surprised the families of Harmony House, New Community's transitional housing facility for the homeless, by making an appearance at a holiday dinner hosted by the Hunter Foundation.

A Daytime Emmy-nominated host of "The Wendy Williams Show" who is widely known by her maiden name, Williams is married to Kevin Hunter and the couple's namesake charity organization threw a holiday party for NCC families. The festivities included dinner served by the Hunter family—Williams, Hunter and their son, Lil Kev — music spun by deejay Antoine Qua and a visit from Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, who greeted each child and gave out presents.


Bringing Joy To Her World: NCC Resident Hosts Party, Helps Neighbors

Gwen Williams keeps a watchful eye on the goings on at New Community Sussex Gardens. She's the type of resident who knows her neighbors by name and stops to ask about the welfare of their loved ones.

Williams goes the extra mile.

"It's in her heart. It's who she is," said Nakesha Dunn, who lives at Sussex Gardens with her four children. "She doesn't even have to know you."

A longtime resident of Sussex Gardens, a New Community residential complex for families located at 78 North Sixth St. in Newark, Williams recently played host to a building-wide Christmas party, all financed through the generosity of her heart.
