Who We Are
We save children’s lives and build healthy families.
Founded in 1894, The Children’s Home Society of New Jersey is a nonprofit organization that helps at-risk infants, children, youth, and families achieve their potential. We protect abused or neglected infants and children, strengthen families, and strive for stable, permanent, and loving homes. The Children’s Home Society of New Jersey gives parents the knowledge they need to help their children and themselves long after our active services have ended.
CHSofNJ is proud to be committed to becoming a trauma-informed agency.
The Children’s Home Society of New Jersey strives to create a safe and culturally sensitive environment that promotes and fosters self-awareness of life impacting events while providing respect, encouraging independence and instilling hope in our children, families, staff, volunteers and interns.
MEET OUR CHILDREN
Carla and Cecilia’s Story
Carla and Cecilia were always very close since they were toddlers. Then, two years ago, Carla lost her little sister, Cecilia, to a sudden illness. Cecilia was only thirteen months younger than Carla.
Late one night in June of 2017, Eveline was awakened by terrible pain. What began as a dull ache earlier in the evening had become sharp, excruciating pains that seemed to shoot across her lower back.
Carrie and Mars
Carrie’s childhood was less than idyllic; her mother was manipulative and emotionally abusive, and by 16, Carrie began dating someone whose attitude and behaviors mirrored those of her mother.
