CHILDREN'S AID ​& 
FAMILY SERVICES

Children's Aid and Family Services helps children who don’t have families able to care for them. They support children, young adults, the elderly and their families through the everyday challenges and transitions in life.

When you give to the Holiday Fund, you are not only supporting this local NJ organization, but you are also supporting 9 other amazing social service agencies across 6 counties making a difference where it counts. ONE DONATION is all it takes to help all 10 agencies during the peak season of need. Please give generously.

Placing children for adoption isa core commitment for CAFS. They provide support services, therapeutic foster care, drug and alcohol abuse education & prevention, and much more.

CAFS offers in-home support services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, housing and safety-net services for teen moms and their babies,and educational programs and workshops.

CAFS helps create rich, full lives for individuals with developmental disabilities by providing and promoting quality, community-based and shared housing programs, supports, and services.
