For support of the Passaic County portion of its New Jersey Safe Babies Court Team initiative, a New Jersey three-County pilot of a promising national program for children aged 0-3 (and any siblings) who have been abused or neglected and who are involved in the child welfare system in Passaic, Essex and Hudson Counties. The program works closely with the children, families, courts, caseworkers, and key community stakeholders to deliver enhanced, specialized care for each child and their family in a collaborative multidisciplinary approach based upon research. Funding would provide partial support towards building the program to full enrollment of children and families over the course of the following year. Passaic County CASA advocates, facilitates and influences life changing decisions for children in the child welfare system.
