OUR FOCUS IS ON CHILDREN

Child & Family Resources (CFR) focuses on children. We create and implement programs and services that support the development of children and their families by engaging and partnering with the community in their efforts to enhance the lives of children. Our vision is a communal state which shares the burden of early care and education with families.

Interactive Voice Response – IVR Update

Beginning on February 1, 2021, parents and caregivers that participate in New Jersey’s Child Care Subsidy Program will be required to report their child’s attendance through the State’s electronic attendance system (Interactive Voice Response-IVR). Child & Family Resources is here to support child care providers and families in this process through technical assistance sessions to help you learn how to properly use the phone system and answer questions. IVR training dates will be listed on the Child & Family Resources “Training Calendar“.
