We work with each organization to identify their needs, recruit teams of volunteers and manage projects where volunteers can make meaningful contributions; then recruit and deploy teams of volunteers to help. Your nonprofit can benefit from Jersey Cares in the following ways:
As a leader in volunteerism in New Jersey, Jersey Cares increases the level of meaningful volunteer engagement by creating and managing efficient, impactful projects that address critical community-identified needs.
Advocates for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ) works with local, state and federal leaders to identify and implement changes that will benefit New Jersey’s children.
Our work results in better laws and policies, more effective funding and stronger services for children and families. This means more children are given the chance to grow up safe, healthy and educated.
A cornerstone of ACNJ’s success is its independence. We are strictly non-partisan and accept no government funding for advocacy, freeing us to focus on our sole mission – helping children.
To identify children’s needs through research, policy and legal analysis, to raise awareness of those needs through strategic communications, and to work with elected officials and other decision-makers to enact effective responses.
Investments in our children reap results. Not for just one child, but for thousands of children across New Jersey. Changes in public policy can mean the difference between growing up healthy and strong or facing a lifelong struggle to survive. What is public policy?
ACNJ’s goal is to help all children grow up safe, healthy and educated so they can become productive adults, contributing to New Jersey’s communities, securing our future and making the state a better place to live.
