NCC Founder Receives Humanitarian Award

Two remarkable men. Two mission-driven organizations. A common thread of dedication, compassion and service to those most in need.

That was the theme of the Circle of Life Children’s Center’s inaugural Concert Gala Dinner on Nov. 16, 2016, where Monsignor William J. Linder was honored with the Humanitarian Award.

An elegant affair, the gala was held at the Crystal Plaza in Livingston and benefited children with life-threatening illnesses. Circle of Life Founder Dr. Jim Oleske, a pioneer in the field of pediatric AIDS treatment, is a longtime friend of Monsignor Linder and was honored that same evening with the Founder’s Award.


Support New Community: Help Us Touch
More Lives

Dear Friends of New Community,

Have you ever wondered, “How many lives does New Community touch?” Earlier this year, we launched a project to find out.

Dubbed as Project Green Thumb, New Community’s department leaders tracked how many lives we touched as a community development corporation serving a vast range of needs by counting the number of people served during the month of August 2016.

One of the lives that New Community has impacted over the years is 22-year-old Steed Amegbor of Irvington. Steed is currently studying at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken. Raised by a single mother, Steed was born in Togo in West Africa and came to the United States during his junior year of high school. Through the financial assistance of the Monsignor William J. Linder Scholarship, he was able to enroll at St. Benedict’s Preparatory School in Newark and receive a rigorous education to prepare him for college.

Madge Wilson Honored At Statewide Convention In Atlantic City

Madge Wilson was the guest of honor at the 68th Annual Health Care Association of New Jersey Convention and Expo in Atlantic City.

Known for her giving spirit and constant acts of service, Wilson was the winner of the association’s 2016 Volunteer of the Year award.

Wilson, a board member and outreach coordinator, was nominated by the staff at New Community Extended Care Facility in July. She has been a volunteer at Extended Care, a 180-bed capacity skilled nursing facility in Newark, for the last five years. She dedicates her time to helping discharged residents secure housing and furniture. Beyond that, she even ensures that residents are supplied with groceries. On a regular basis, Wilson visits nursing home residents to inquire about their wellbeing and happiness while staying at Extended Care.
