Harmony House: Transitional Living
278 South Orange Ave., Newark NJ 07103
Harmony House is a transitional housing program with the primary goal of helping families move from homelessness to permanent housing and from dependency to self- sufficiency. With the capacity to house 102 families in individual apartment units and a host of on-site social services. Harmony House provides much more than a shelter. It offers stability to families facing seemly insurmountable barriers and enables them to restore their lives.
As the largest transitional living facility in NJ, Harmony House has earned an excellent reputation for the array of effective and comprehensive services it provides to homeless families and children. Residents are encouraged--and in many cases are required--to take advantage of the childcare, job training and other resources available to them through the New Community Network.
