Created in 2001 by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Children’s Futures works across Central Jersey to ensure that all children and families get off to a healthy start in life. At our core, we aim to increase opportunities for health and wellness and to ward off health and social problems that can lead to a lifetime of illness and dependency.
Because no single agency can claim the necessary expertise, authority and resources to accomplish these goals alone, Children’s Futures collaborates with public and private agencies across multiple sectors, including education, health and social welfare. Since 2001, the hallmark of our work has been our commitment to using evidence-based programs and measuring agreed-upon outcome objectives. For our efforts, Children’s Futures has been recognized nationally as an exemplary U.S. non-profit organization. We invite you to view the video below to see how Children’s Futures is working to improve the lives of Mercer County children and families.
