Mission & Vision

New City Kids’ After School Centers serve 300 children (1st-8th grade) daily at five sites in three cities: Jersey City, NJ, Paterson, NJ, and Grand Rapids, MI. The core curriculum blends English, math, and geography lessons with fine and performing arts, music, and more. By surrounding them with a community of love and development, New City Kids strives to set youth on a path of transformation that will carry them forward for the rest of their lives.

Our Involvement

New City Kids: Paterson and Jersey City has been rapidly growing since they started their programs. Servant’s Heart has supported both the Paterson and Jersey City locations in their growth by constructing four classrooms and a stage to facilitate their after school programs, installing 2 commercial bathrooms to accomodate large groups, and building out offices and housing for their staff.
