Welcome to Greater Life!

We’re a non-profit Faith-Based Youth & Family Community Organization that has been serving Newark’s South Ward & entire city since 1986.  We provide social services to over 1,500 youth, adults & family members each year, primarily ranging from 7 to 19, reaching out to precious lives suffering from poverty, family instability, and/or exposure to gang culture and drugs.  We help them thrive academically, socially, physically, spiritually and morally

Our expert staff of professionals and volunteers knows this community well—most of us live here!—and we offer variety of programs designed to promote improved grades and behavior, physical health, social skills, family and community involvement, entrepreneurial and leadership skills, and spiritual growth.
