Helping in Our Community

NJR's Community Commitment

We’re Working with You to Make Our Communities Better

NJR has a longstanding tradition of service to the community that goes far beyond customers’ energy needs, focusing on education, wellness, and the environment. We’re proud to be part of our customers’ lives and the communities we serve.

We believe vibrant communities create opportunities that allow residents to live fuller, more rewarding lives. As a reliable partner, we are proud to do our part to help to make our communities better – together.  

Community "VISION"
Our Volunteers Inspiring Service in Our Neighborhoods (VISION) program provides NJR employees and retirees, along with their families and friends, the opportunity to give back to the community. We also encourage student participation in VISION projects. Our team of volunteers contributes more than 5,000 hours at over 50 community events each year. For more information on VISION, call 732-938-1074 or email

Just for Seniors
Recognizing the diverse needs of our customers, we provide many services and community involvement programs designed to meet the specific needs of the senior community. This includes a variety of resources to help seniors effectively manage their energy bills, like energy assistance and home energy improvement programs. Contact us for details about our Special Services for Seniors.

Creating Affordable Housing for Families
By partnering with local nonprofit organizations through our Home Ownership Program, we are proud to provide an opportunity for qualified working families in our service territory to become first-time homeowners. To date, more than 260 homes have been completed through partnerships with Asbury Park’s Interfaith Neighbors, Inc., Homes for All, Inc., Morris Habitat for Humanity, Monmouth Habitat for Humanity, Coastal Habitat for Humanity, and Homes Now.

Giving and Gift-matching
Our employee giving and gift-matching program inspires philanthropy, allowing employees to make a greater impact in their communities. Employee fundraising efforts further benefit nonprofit organizations near and dear to their hearts, including the March of Dimes, the American Heart Association, and the American Cancer Society. Each year, employees donate to more than 300 local and national nonprofits during a company-wide annual fundraising effort, and NJR matches these donations, dollar for dollar. Since 2011, NJR employees have helped raise more than $1.4 million dollars to benefit community and charitable organizations.
