Welcome to the CHD Coalition

The Congenital Heart Defect Coalition (CHD Coalition for short) is a national nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to improve the quality of life for children and adults born with heart disease, also known as a congenital heart defect or CHD. There are two critical paths for us to achieve this goal: (1) unite and support the families affected by CHD; and (2) fund research to improve long-term care and outcomes. Wrapping around these two objectives is the need to increase national public awareness of the severity of congenital heart defects. Even though CHD is the #1 birth defect affecting 1 in 100 babies born in the United States, most people have not even heard of it until their family was directly impacted.


While research offers the huge potential for improvement and prevention of heart disease, programs that support the community and hospitals deliver an immediate benefit to the families and children. For this reason, the CHD Coalition is a very unique organization that understands the importance of contributing to both.


We are the largest organization in Northern New Jersey, originally established in 2007, dedicated to reducing the impact of congenital heart disease. But our focus is not limited to NJ. We are continuing to expand into other states so families across the nation can benefit from our mission. Together, we are united to make a change.
