ORANJ is the Organization of Residents Associations of New Jersey. The Residents Associations (RAs) address the well-being of the residents of Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) who reside in Independent Living units, Assisted Living units, or Long Term Care units of such communities.

ORANJ was established for the purpose of supporting, empowering, and bettering the lives of senior citizens of New Jersey.
