"Our Mission is to offer a comprehensive continuum of mental health services that promotes full participation in community life"



















OceanCares Foundation


Your gift to the OceanCares Foundation will help people with mental health needs have access to services and supports, allowing them to live healthier and succeed in their treatment goals.  Your donation will have a lasting impact on our community as we implement new programs and treatments, build capacity in current programs, and support ongoing consumer needs.


The OceanCares vision is that security, respect and the opportunity to pursue personal well being are available to everyone, regardless of their mental health status.  We support the mission and programs of Ocean Mental Health Services through building community awareness, facilitating community support, promoting diversity of services, and embracing innovation.

 Make a Foundation Donation!

Make a general Foundation Donation today to support various needs in Ocean County.  Without the assistance and support of our community, OceanMHS would not be able to provide the comprehensive services we offer.  Your donation will make a difference in the lives of over 8,000 people in OceanMHS care each year.  For example:

  • Your donation of $50 can provide a day of treatment for a child in the Bayside Partial Day program.
  • Your donation of $100 can provide Nutrition Counseling for a child in the Homestead Group Home.
  • Your donation of $200 can provide a year of Psychiatric appointments in our Outpatient program
  • Your donation of $500 can provide a computer for an adult living independently in the community.
  • Your donation of $750 can provide two months of heat to a group of adult clients learning to live effectively in the community.  
  • Your donation of $1000 can provide a security deposit for a homeless person or family.


Join the Grandparents Club! 

Make a donation in the name of your own grandchildren.  Your Grandparents Club donation will be used to support a child’s mental and behavioral health needs.  Mental illnesses affect one in five children.   In Ocean County, NJ alone there are thousands of children who need access to mental health services.  Help us help the children of Ocean County with your Grandparents Club gift. 



Whether you designate you donation to a specific cause or not, the OceanCares Foundation will be sure it is put to good use.
