New Jersey SHARES, Inc. (NJ SHARES) is a nationally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides statewide help and referral for essential services to those in need of assistance. NJ SHARES serves as a “safety net” for households that face an emergency or a crisis situation. These unexpected circumstances may result in the household’s inability to pay for vital services, which include but are not limited to – energy (gas and electric), water, communications and housing resources. Through advocacy, community outreach, education, referral and the utilization of our multilingual call center, NJ SHARES connects low- and moderate- income households with the available resources necessary to not only address their current situation, but also any ongoing needs. Working with our affiliated social service and legislative partners located in all 21 counties in New Jersey, NJ SHARES looks for a holistic solution – addressing each household’s individual circumstance, whether temporary or sustained.
