Children’s Aid and Family Services is one of northern New Jersey’s leading nonprofit providers of services that protect and support vulnerable children, adults and families. Throughout history, the agency has evolved and expanded to meet ever-changing social needs.
Founded in 1899 with a focus on child protection and adoption, for over 120 years Children’s Aid and Family Services has been a recognized leader in its work with children and families. Because of our expertise in helping vulnerable children and families, we have been able to expand our services to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Today, the agency is a recognized leader in providing disability support services, programs to protect children and strengthen families, and alcohol and drug misuse prevention and recovery support programs.
Children’s Aid and Family Services strengthens families and empowers individuals – children and adults alike – to reach their fullest potential. Motivated by compassion and in partnership with the community, we make positive lasting differences in the lives of those we serve. We provide high-quality, innovative services to children, adults, and their families that advance social, educational and emotional development and wellbeing.
