Assisting Families to Become Self-Sufficient

Better Lives For All

The New Community Corporation (NCC) of Newark, NJ has for the past fifty-two years been engaging in efforts to build affordable family and senior housing, provide youth and mental health services, access to long term care, a food pantry, and a quality education for inner city residents in order to improve the lives of all. Harmony House is an NCC facility that provides transitional housing, social, and youth services for homeless families, with the objective of assisting these families to become self-sufficient.

Karlton Moore, Artel’s Mid-Atlantic Laboratory Applications Specialist, is a resident of Newark and reached out to NCC to find out what Artel could do to assist. “2020 has challenged every resident in Newark to show their strength, resilience, and empathy,” he stated. “Once I understood what the NCC’s Harmony House does for the people of Newark, it was plain that supporting it would be a great way to brighten up what has been a very difficult year for so many. Harmony House takes in families that are out of options and gives them the tools to make sure that they’re successful, changing Newark for the better in doing so. The Harmony House and Artel operate in different business spaces, but both institutions work for the same purpose: helping people lead better lives.”

Karlton spearheaded an internal fundraiser on behalf of this worthy cause. A number of Artel employees volunteered to undertake the popular ice bucket challenge or to take a pie in the face – all in good humor and with donated dollars designated for various employees’ fates. The company matched the raised funds, resulting in a significant donation for the program.
