The wonderful work our friends and partners over at Fair Share Northgate II has been highlighted in LeadingAge Magazine. The article introduces the building as a ‘safe haven’ to the over 400 residents that call Northgate home.

Camden, NJ, population 77,000, is one of the poorest, most crime-ridden cities in the country.

Northgate II is part of Fair Share Housing Development, a not-for-profit founded by Peter J.
