Donor Families and Recipients
NJ Sharing Network honors all organ and tissue donors and and their families for their courageous decision to give the gift of life.
We are here for donor families
In their time of sorrow, these families gave the gift of life to others in need. While we cannot take away the pain of their loss, we hope to provide services that will promote healing during the difficult journey that lies ahead.
We offer on-going support, beginning at the hospital and continuing with grief resources, workshops and events to celebrate the lives of our donors. Our Family Services team members have diverse backgrounds and experiences including: chaplaincy, social work, bereavement counseling and grief recovery support. We can provide assistance in finding grief resources within your community, answer questions about donation, provide updates on recipients, assist with donor family/recipient correspondence, and provide information on how to get involved with our organization.
