Our Accomplishments

Investments in our children reap results. Not for just one child, but for thousands of children across New Jersey. Changes in public policy can mean the difference between growing up healthy and strong or facing a lifelong struggle to survive. ACNJ’s vision and mission is to help all children grow up safe, healthy and educated so they can become productive adults, contributing to New Jersey’s communities, securing our future and making the state a better place to live.

Over the years, ACNJ’s advocacy efforts have resulted in:

  • More children receiving health coverage, improving their chances of growing into healthy adults
  • More children enrolled in quality preschool programs, helping to ensure school success
  • More children receiving a healthy breakfast at school, removing a major barrier to learning
  • More children safe from abuse and neglect
  • More families receiving the supports they need to feed, clothe and house their children
  • More youth diverted from the juvenile justice system and put on the path to productive adulthood
  • More parents, caregivers and others understanding children’s legal rights, empowering them to advocate effectively for the children in their lives
