“Necessity knows no season… our programs are needed now more than ever…”
A letter from President & CEO James M. Jacob
NJ SHARES is a safety net for households in an emergency or crisis situation and our programs are needed now more than ever. As a result of donations from friends like you, we have provided $72.5 million in grants, programs and outreach that has touched the lives of more than 180,000 families since 1998.
Necessity knows no season. Economic recovery in New Jersey is slow, and we know from the Legal Services’ Poverty Benchmarks Report that poverty in New Jersey is at record levels not seen in 50 years. Many of our neighbors are living paycheck to paycheck, one unforeseen event can have them choosing between heating and eating.
Every time we can help a household with their utility bill it’s because of friends like you! I hope that you will support NJ SHARES to help us address the growing number of neighbors struggling to stay afloat financially while keeping their shelter safely lit and at a livable temperature. Your donations are tax deductible and may be eligible for New Jersey’s energy companies matching program – doubling our ability to help.
New Jersey SHARES, Inc. is a statewide non-profit corporation providing assistance to individuals and families in need of help meeting their energy and utility burden.
Through advocacy, community outreach, education, information and referral, we also connect low and moderate income households with available resources to meet their ongoing needs.
Your Warm Heart can Heat a Home!
You make the difference!
