Newark Westside Corps

The Salvation Army Newark Westside Corps
699 Springfield Avenue
Newark, NJ, 07103-1022
Phone: (973) 375-5933

Springfield Avenue in Newark had historically been a main artery in and out of the City.  Prior to the Newark riots, the street was home to many fine stores, restaurants and businesses.  However, following the riots, much of the Avenue was nothing but boarded up buildings and vacant lots.  The Salvation Army at that time, had a small storefront outpost which provided weekly worship and youth activities for the local community children.  As the needs of the community increased, so did our need for a larger, multi-purpose facility.

In the mid '70s, The Salvation Army built a new Corps Community Center within a large vacant lot with a gym, worship center, classrooms and recreational rooms.  Senior citizens and youth of all ages, sought refuge and security within the confines of the building.  As times and needs have changed, so have the programs and services.  Today, the Newark Westside Corps offers the following programs and services:

  • Sunday worship
  • Sunday and week-day Christian education
  • Computer instruction for individuals of all ages
  • Emergency food pantry
  • Youth and young adult recreational programs
  • Life skills classes for teens and young adults
  • Spiritual counseling
  • Licensed after-school program
  • Mission: Literacy classes for young readers
  • Seasonal Assistance

The Newark Westside Corps is also home to the Essex County Grandfamily Success Center - a multi-service program for grandparents and relative caregivers.  Services include but are not limited to:

  • Social and recreational programs for the caregivers
  • After-school and summer day camp for their children
  • Kinship Navigator and Wrap-around services
  • Legal guardianship
  • Case management and counseling
  • Seasonal assistance
  • Support groups and educational programs for caregivers
  • Emergency assistance

The Salvation Army Newark Westside invite you to experience the love of Jesus Christ! Come and visit us with your family!
