This web platform was conceived in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  Tens of thousands of individuals reached out to help, but there was no consolidated resource to capture all of the ways people could assist.  HELPNJNOW.ORG was designed to connect resources with up to date community needs in order to best respond to disasters.  This site was built and is maintained by a partnership between New Jersey Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NJVOAD), the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM) and the Governor’s Office of Volunteerism.
