At Chai Lifeline NJ, we'll do anything for our families.

Our team members help by providing professional case management services, crises intervention and medical advocacy. On top of that, we provide emotional support and social outlets like:

  • Providing respite for family members
  • Hosting a multitude of programs for children of all ages
  • Organizing daycare, after-school programs, and scheduling during vacation days
  • Offering a big brother/sister program for siblings, featuring homework assistance and peer support
  • Arranging classes, activities, and support groups for famliy members
  • Being consistently available through counseling, insurance advocacy, transportaion, financial and clinical support and beyond!

But right now, these programs happen in a range of locations. To get the relief Chai Lifeline offers, families confronting serious illness have to spend their days shuttling from place to place.

Chai Lifeline NJ's new headquarters will provide a center of stability for families impacted by illness and crisis.

By contributing to our new home, you can help give these families a single, centralized destination where every member of the family can find the services they need—along with a measure of relief, community, and normalcy.

Imagine how this center will transform families' lives.

While my son Avi is getting treatment in the hospital, my children will have a safe, loving, joyful environment that they can go to daily after school. Knowing that they can comfortably do their homework, have a nutritious supper, and play with friends until I am able to pick them up means the world to me. The Chai Lifeline center of stability will provide an unparalleled level of support to our community, and be a game changer for me and my family.
