About Us

Through education, information, networking and mentoring opportunities, this state-wide organization offers members support in dealing with the diverse and ever-changing responsibilities of their positions.

Participating in NJAHVRP, you will meet colleagues from healthcare facilities throughout New Jersey. You will gain valuable information at meetings and keep abreast of current issues and trends affecting you and your volunteers in this rapidly changing environment. You will share common successes and problems with your peers and enjoy the camaraderie of a highly professional group of healthcare administrators.

Please join us as advocates for volunteerism and the importance of professional management of volunteer resources in healthcare today.
