“With 37 percent of our New Jersey neighbors working but earning less than needed to cover basic costs… our programs are needed now more than ever.” – Jim Jacob
We shiver just to recall the extremely cold we have endured in New Jersey this season. As you know, NJ SHARES is an energy and utility assistance safety net for households in an emergency or crisis situation who are not eligible for other forms of assistance.
As we head into Spring, January and February‘s heating bills come due and we see an influx in households applying for assistance. Households who receive help from NJ SHARES weather a financial storm that was not forecast. With 37 percent of our New Jersey neighbors working but earning less than needed to cover basic costs of housing, utilities, healthcare, transportation, child care and food our programs are needed now more than ever.
Through your generosity, we have kept more than 185,000 of our neighbor‘s lights on and their homes warm over the past 20 years!
Support NJ SHARES and together we can continue to help to keep our neighbor‘s lights on and their homes warm. 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.
