Are you involved in NJ’s child protection system?
If so, please take a few minutes to complete ACNJ’s new survey. We are exploring how New Jersey children in foster care are faring when it comes to their educational stability and visitation with parents and siblings. Your input will help inform our efforts to ensure that these vulnerable children and youth are getting the best possible education and receiving the services they need to be safely reunified with their families, whenever possible.
Take the survey now.
In December, ACNJ released a report on child care in New Jersey, which showed that this critical care consumes a large portion of the average family’s budget and that parents have few reliable, consistent ways to determine the quality of care their child receives. Free hard copies are available to share at meetings, conferences and with your networks. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for copies.
View the brief video summarizing the report.
On Feb. 7, 2014, New Jersey’s dental community will once again come together to deliver oral care to thousands of children under age 13 who otherwise may not be able to afford or access dental care. Volunteers provide oral hygiene instruction, screenings, cleanings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, fluoride treatments, stainless steel crowns and much more. They work to ensure the program is fun and educational and that it gives many children a great first impression of visits to the dentist.
Under the direction of the New Jersey Dental Association and in conjunction with the American Dental Association, Give Kids a Smile NJ has grown to be the largest, single-day program of its kind in the state. For more information and to locate a participating dentist, visit the New Jersey Dental Association’s website.
