Pritzker Children’s Initiative

A Roadmap to Making New Jersey the Safest, Healthiest and Most Supportive Place to Give Birth and Raise a Family

A vision and action plan to unlock the potential of every child in New Jersey to grow up healthy, safe and educated.

More than 100,000 babies are born every year in New Jersey. All possessing unlimited potential, yet many face daunting odds that hurt their ability to reach it fully.

Too often, opportunities are affected by race, income or geography. For some, disparities begin before they are even born, due to uneven maternal health and prenatal care.

At the very time of life when a healthy start, a strong family and access to high quality care and education are most critical to a baby’s foundation, these gaps can have a life-long impact on a child’s growth and development.

We all have a role to play in achieving equity and eliminating disparities that impact outcomes for babies, families and communities. The foundation for change is in place; the opportunity is now!
