Connecting New Jersey (CNJ) serves as New Jersey’s referral system designed to support pregnant and parenting families with children from birth through age five by providing connections with a wide range of critical services such as home visiting, WIC, food assistance programs and more.
The effectiveness of this program is a component of solving New Jersey’s maternal health crisis as well as a critical component of the universal home visitation program, which will allow every mother across the state to receive at least one at-home visit from a nurse within two weeks of delivery, beginning in January 2024.
CNJ will host three forums to hear from community leaders and organizations, service providers, and most importantly, families and mothers. Forums will be held at 10 a.m. on:
1. Wednesday, September 13th
2. Tuesday, September 19th
3. Wednesday, September 27th

Feedback can also be provided Wednesday, September 20th at 10:00 am at the Infant Child Health Committee meeting.
