Colder weather means more of the household budget will be spent to keep the heat on. For some of our New Jersey neighbors, the extra burden will be too much to bear. NSCN partner NJ SHARES offers a safety net for low- to moderate-income individuals and families who do not qualify for low-income programs, but due to financial crisis coupled with the high cost of living, are struggling to stay afloat. NJ SHARES utility bill assistance relieves the immediate household need to remain safe and warm in their home while they work on resolving their other financial burdens.
