Celebrating 45 Years!


This year marks ICC's 45th Anniversary!  As we prepare to celebrate this milestone with a series of events over the next 12 months, we ask you to stay tuned to announcements and join us in our celebration!


Through regular emails and our webpage, we will be sharing a series of essays on ICC's history, taking us from the early days of 1969 when neighborhood residents and community activists, mostly women, organized ICC's first program - a daycare center - to today and our most recent successes including Riverfront Park. 


We find it especially noteworthy that 45 years after our first daycare center opened we will be completing construction of a state-of-the-art Children's Center that will house our Early Head Start and nationally-accredited high quality preschool programs for 225 children ages 0-5 and their families!  ICC graduates will enter Kindergarten ready and eager to learn on their way to life-long happiness and success.


So, in the course of our history, we have both come full circle with your new Children's Center and have filled that circle with numerous other programs and initiatives for the community of Ironbound and the City of Newark.  We couldn't be prouder, while we work ever harder. 


So stay tuned and, most importantly, joins us as we celebrate 45 years of service in the Ironbound!
