With over 40 years of service, The Apostles’ House remains a cornerstone social service agency in the City of Newark. We continue to grow in impact by providing a stable, safe, and drug-free environment where parents and children receive comprehensive social services to improve their physical, emotional, social and financial quality of life.
We continue to work to ensure that those in need within our community receive a supportive hand. We value every individual in our care and believe they are entitled to programs and services that treat them with dignity and concentrate on restoring them as productive individuals. Your generosity makes this possible!
I would like to say that The Apostles' House has helped me in ways I didn’t expect. I greatly appreciate all the hard work, time and energy that the staff, volunteers, and others put into helping us in our time of need. They are very resourceful and persistent to help you achieve your goals. Even though it’s a shelter they made it feel like a home setting. In closing, I would like to say thank you to all the staff, volunteers, donors, and others for the much-needed assistance, time, and support.
In 2018, I was a resident of The Apostles’ House Women and Children Emergency Shelter for seven months. During my stay in the shelter, I found a support system within Miss Victoria and Miss Iris. They provided the guidance, support, and resources I needed to regain control of my life, even during the times I rebelled against it. Through it all, they showed great love and concern, and to their credit, I was able to enroll my son in childcare so that I could focus on finding and securing employment. Today I am employed and living on my own with my son. I still experience many challenges, however, I continue to take the steps necessary to maintain a life for me and my son
