The State of New Jersey unveiled its newest Website, NJ Parent Link, The Early Childhood, Parenting and Professional Resource Center.
NJ Parent Link is a broad based public/private initiative (10 state departments and 14 community/professional partners) supported by the federal Health Resources & Services Administration’s, State Early Childhood Comprehensive System (ECCS) Program Grant (2009-2012).
New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services is the lead agency for this project, coordinating over 30 government service units participating on the website development team.
