New Center Capital Campaign

The Legion of Good Will is opening its first Paiva Netto Educational and Social Assistance Center in the United States. This new property, located at 138-140 Pacific Street, in Newark NJ, will house an Early Learning Center, an After School Program, and a Community Center. Through our new facilities, we will impact approximately 1,300 low-income families in Newark, New Jersey each year. The existing building requires an additional renovation investment of $ 375,000, for improvements and completion of the project. Your support is vital and urgent to reduce poverty and violence in our community. Donate now and help us achieve our goal to open by 2021.

Programs and Services

Early Learning Center

Based on the Legion of Good Will’s signature educational approach used in its schools across six other countries, our new Early Learning and Community Center will provide a unique educational program to benefit dozens of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers from zero to five years old. Our program combines quality care with character building values towards the empowerment of children’s hearts and minds for a solidary society.

After School Program

Serving school-age children from five through twelve years old, our engaging After School Program will provide essential services such as homework help, challenging supplementary classes and stimulating recreational activities. The new facilities are conveniently located near the following public schools: South St., Oliver St. and Hawkins St.

Community Center for Social Assistance

The LGW’s Social and Educational Center works towards meeting the needs of community members. Through these new facilities, we will increase the impact of our current programs in the fields of: family health and wellness, food security and assistance for the homeless, food baskets and school supplies distribution for low income families.
