The CareOne Disaster Relief Fund has been established to provide financial assistance to members of the CareOne community impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
CareOne and its affiliated businesses represent over 4,000 employees throughout the state of New Jersey and serve over 4,000 patients daily. Many lives were impacted throughout the communities CareOne serves. CareOne's Monmouth County care centers were impacted the greatest, with over 30 employees who currently have uninhabitable living quarters.
Additionally, many of CareOne's residents' families and health care partners were impacted through loss of housing, transportation and daily living necessities.
The CareOne Disaster Relief Fund is an organization that focuses on improving the quality of life through charitable financial assistance to our employees, customers and their families and community organizations who were the most significantly impacted by the effects of Hurricane Sandy.

Support and CounselingCareOne has deployed counselors to our hardest hit communities to aid employees and community members effectively manage the emotional and psychological impact the storm has had on their lives. Initial services have been arranged and funded by CareOne, but further counseling and support is needed while the victims recover from the devastating storm.
Assistance with Federal AidOngoing volunteer support has been provided to CareOne centers hardest hit by the storm to assist employees, customers and community members who require assistance with applying for federal aid. These volunteers are assisting victims with navigating applications, assisting with data entry and supporting the applicants in interpreting the information needed to successfully complete these applications.
