Jersey Cares, a nonprofit organization, established in 1993, recruits and engages volunteers in rewarding, effective efforts that address community-identified needs. We partner with local nonprofits to identify needs and implement volunteer projects to meet these needs. We provide individuals, families, corporate employees and community groups with a wide variety of volunteer opportunities that range from tutoring children to painting new murals in schools.

Jersey Cares is an affiliate of the Hands on Network, an innovative alliance of volunteer catalysts throughout the world.

Volunteering with Jersey Cares is easy; once you have registered and logged in, choose from hundreds of opportunities in our Volunteer Opportunity Calendar, participate in an Annual Event, run a Collection Drive or get your company involved in our Corporate Service Program.
