Children's Aid and Family Services (CAFS)

Children's Aid and Family Services strengthens families and empowers individuals -- children and adults alike -- to reach their fullest potential. Motivated by compassion and in partnership with the community, we make positive lasting differences in the lives of those we serve. We provide high-quality, innovative services to children, adults, and their families that advance social, educational and emotional development and well-being. 

We are now an ABA provider with Aetna, United (Medicaid & commercial) and Wellcare. Currently working on Horizon and AmeriGroup.

Children’s Aid and Family Services is one of northern New Jersey’s leading nonprofit providers of human services programs. We were founded in 1899 with a focus on child protection and adoption. While helping children and families is still a core part of our mission, the agency has evolved and expanded to meet ever-changing social needs.
