There are many ways to help HTCNJ and this list is not exhaustive and we are always looking for new ideas – please contact us if you have an idea or would like to offer support in ANY way.



Volunteers are integral to our success at Healing the Children® New Jersey.  We have more than 500 volunteers who contribute in a myriad of ways:

  • Host a Child: Volunteer host families care for children for their duration of their care while they are in the U.S.  More info here
  • Medical: Volunteer medical practitioners provide pro-bono services to children, both within New Jersey and internationally.
  • Administrative:  Volunteers help with bookkeeping, clerical tasks, mailings.
  • Collection Drives:  Volunteers host drives at their workplaces, schools or service organizations and collect gift cards and items we use to benefit children locally and globally.
  • Fund Raising Events:  Volunteers participate in HTCNJ fund raising events by soliciting auction prizes, selling raffle tickets, managing registration, and organizing logistical details.
  • Gardening:  Volunteer youth groups/houses of worship tend the HTCNJ garden at our Hawthorne office.
  • Graphic Design:  Volunteers lend their expertise to design pamphlets, brochures, event invitations, etc.
  • Sewing:  Volunteers sew children’s hospital gowns used on medical trips overseas.



Tax-deductible donations are the main way we fund our on-going operations
