Prevent Child Abuse New Jersey
Prevent Child Abuse New Jersey promotes Great Childhoods, positive parenting and healthy child development. It is the state office for both Healthy Families New Jersey (HF-TIP NJ) and Parents as Teachers New Jersey (PAT-NJ). These two home visiting programs are designed to teach new parents how to form healthy bonds with their babies, to interact in developmentally appropriate ways, and provide safe homes for their children. Our prevention programs include public awareness campaigns, parenting education programs, workshops and professional training, home visitation services, initiatives that promote parental involvement in a child’s education, and projects that support highly vulnerable families. We help parents to nurture, develop and sustain healthy children.
