About Urban Renewal Corp.

Lending a Helping Hand

Programs and Services

Urban Renewal Corp (URC) is a community based non-profit organization that has been providing a variety of essential social services to vulnerable populations in New Jersey for almost two decades. URC provides emergency services, primary medical care, mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment and counseling, vocational education and job training.  URC has emerged as a leader in delivering comprehensive social services for the homeless and economically disadvantaged. Currently URC maintains 6 facilities servicing emergency, transitional, and permanent housing needs. In 2002 we opened the 50,000 sq. foot Urban Recycling and Training Center (URTC) to provide an innovative and comprehensive computer education and recycling program to better prepare our students to reenter the workforce as capable and successful individuals.

Urban Renewal Corp (URC) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), community- based organization.  We are committed to addressing and counteracting the effects of homelessness.  Our organization has been providing emergency housing and comprehensive social services to not only veterans, economically disadvantaged and the adult homeless population, but to thousands of hard to place individuals including violent and long-term, multigenerational offenders in Newark, Essex County/Hudson Counties since 1994.

URC is known to be the “go to” organization for emergency housing, answering the call of families and individuals in crisis.  URC responds to New Jersey’s emergency needs; whether it is a State-declared medical quarantine, weather related emergency, or the relocation of individuals displaced by fire.  URC has been the organization on the front lines providing the emergency services needed.

Since our inception, we have been an integral part of the Emergency Housing Community and a strong presence in the landscape of supportive services. Urban Renewal’s mission is to increase the quality of life for very low-income individuals and to make a permanent and positive change in the lives of each person we serve.  Our goal is to help people move from homelessness, substance abuse, dependency, and public assistance into permanent employment and stable housing.  URC has created a paradigm that provides our clients with the opportunity to maintain their dignity and regain their self-sufficiency.
