The Children’s Home Society of New Jersey mission since 1894 has been to find loving families for children, to protect children from harm, and help parents find better ways to be parents so they can keep their children. These three facets of our mission remain core to us today. From its beginning, CHS of NJ has adhered to the philosophy that each child should be cared for in a family home and loved the same as a child born to a family.
