A Call to Action for New Jersey's Children
Date:9/15/2009

s and support.
  • Becoming a mentor and volunteer for local community Boys and Girls Clubs.
  • Donating to benefit and support recently reunified families around the holidays.
  • Supporting New Jersey's Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).
  • Raising community awareness of support for youth in need including the 24-hour 2NDFLOOR youth helpline.
  • Spreading the word about New Jersey's child safety campaigns to prevent injury or harm to children and infants.
  • "People want to make a difference in the lives of these children, but it can be daunting to know where to start. RaiseMeUp.org is the place to start in New Jersey," Commissioner Ricketts said.

    Casey Family Programs chose New Jersey for the campaign launch because of the work already underway at DCF to improve New Jersey's foster care system. New Jersey is a leader in improving protection for vulnerable children and strengthening families, preventing the need for children to enter the foster care system and finding permanent homes for children languishing in foster care. Highlights of DCF's work include:

    • A record number of adoptions - over 4,200 former foster children adopted between 2006 and 2008.
    • Recruiting and licensing over 5,200 new foster and adoptive families.
    • Reducing the number of children in out-of-home placements by 25 percent (from June 2006 to June 2009).
    • Created a statewide network of Family Success Centers and a new home-visitation program for new mothers.

    "We want to build on the success we already are seeing here in New Jersey," DeSantis said. "We know how much the people of New Jersey love their children. Raise Me Up helps them put that love into action."
