NESF is home to the Weequahic Family Success Center  (FSC).  Our FSC is a one-stop comprehensive resource center that promotes family unity and empowerment.  The Center hosts monthly parent training workshops, grandparent support group, as well as programs and activities geared towards strengthening the family.   The work of the FSC is driven and guided by a Parent Advisory Board comprised of community members, FSC Families and business professionals.

Grandparents Support Group: Our Grandparents support group provides supportive services to grandparents who are now rearing their grandchildren.

Family Success Center at Newark Beth Israel is a partnership between Newark Beth Israel Medical Center where individuals and families can receive program and service referrals, apply for the Affordable Healthcare, receive assistance with online applications for government benefits; and receive needed items for infants and children. This Center’s focus is on expectant mothers and those needing social service assistance prior to admittance to the hospital. This Center aids in the diversion of non-emergency patients from the emergency room and triage units.
