BIANJ has been closely monitoring reports about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation. We have been speaking daily with our partners, monitoring information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Consistent with their guidelines, all events, conferences and support groups between now and June 7th are postponed or cancelled.
This also includes community outreach and prevention.

Our Helpline (732-783-6172) will continue to operate during normal business hours.
Support Coordination and CARES staff will continue to be available via telephone.

Thank you for your understanding and please know that our staff is here to support you.
