What happens to children matters, not only to them as individuals and their immediate family, but to the neighborhoods they live in, the schools they will attend, the community they will eventually work in, and the body politic itself.

Your generous gift to Child & Family Resources provides the much-needed resources to expand programs and services for our entire community. If you wish to focus your contribution, may we suggest our three core services areas:
Child Care Resource & Referral (R&R):
We engage and partner with parents, child care professionals, and the community to ensure that all families have access to a nurturing, motivating, and inspiring early care and education system for their children ages 6 weeks to 5 years and at out-of-time school-age programs. Services include: Child care referrals and consumer education, and child care quality improvement initiatives.
Violence & Abuse Prevention:
Prevention of violence against children, youth, and adults begins with each of us as adults, parents, caregivers, and teachers. Child & Family Resources offers a range of programs and services to reduce violence in the lives of children, including ACT Against Violence Initiative, Partnering with Parents, and the Greater Morris Area Diaper Bank.
Recent research clearly documents that early childhood teaching is complex and demands specific skills—clearly not babysitting! No matter how quality manifests itself, it is inextricably linked to caregiver training and education. The more training, both formal and specialized education caregivers have, the more skilled they are at helping young children thrive and achieve their potential. Services include our annual Fall Conference and year round seminars for New Jersey educators.
