Elnora Haynes: A Loving Servant Who
Lived ‘A Triumphant Life’

Elnora Haynes was a force to be reckoned with—but not in the way that most would expect. In 2016, Haynes, a longtime resident of New Community Associates, was described by the City of Newark as “a stabilizing force in the community” at a ceremony honoring unsung heroes.

“She was truly a community activist and a public servant,” said her daughter, Ericka Haynes.

Despite having a petite frame, Haynes was a mighty pillar within NCC and the wider Newark community, where she tirelessly served fellow seniors, youth and everyone in between. A stalwart leader in local politics, Haynes made it known that she considered her post as building chaplain to be her most cherished role. Haynes died at age 82 on March 1, 2017, surrounded by her family and loved ones.


2016: A Year In Review

There was a lot that happened at New Community in 2016...so much, in fact, that it’s worth a moment to take a look back on the progress made to help residents of inner cities improve the quality of their lives to reflect individual God-given dignity and personal achievement.

The upcoming year of 2018 marks New Community’s 50th anniversary since its founding in 1968, the year following the aftermath of the Newark uprising, which devastated the city’s Central Ward. New Community has never lost sight of its mission, which traces back to its earliest days. As historians often say, in order to know where we’re going, we need to know where we have been. The following recaps some of the main highlights of last year:
