How your donation helps

Brief history and what we do
Late in 1988, an electrical fire destroyed the interior of the original Westminster House, rendering the building unusable and displacing all the meetings. Meetings were rescheduled at various venues throughout Newark with the majority being rescheduled at the church.
Since then thousands of Newark area residents have found sobriety, serenity and recovery from addiction within the walls of Westminster House. The outreach has expanded to support various groups such as: Overeaters Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, mental health support groups and those individuals coping with the loss of a loved one to drugs. There are approximately 140 meetings each month serving an estimated 500 people in the recovery community.
Westminster Management continues to provide oversight for the facility. Its board continues to be a successful collaboration between the recovery and faith communities. Our goal is to provide an exciting and inspiring environment where people feel welcome and safe during their recovery journey.
