Message from Michele


Welcome to The North Ward Center, a non-profit organization that is rich in history and service.

Over 45 years ago, my father, Stephen N. Adubato founded The North Ward Center with one simple goal: to empower the residents of the North Ward of Newark by providing services designed to strengthen the family and the community. Since then, our services have expanded to the greater Newark area.  

I firmly believe that service to others is the highest purpose and I am honored to be in a position to lead an organization that has served the community so well for so long.
