NJ's Commissioner of Children & Families and Steve Adubato Examine the Short and Long Term Impact of "ACEs"
Steve Adubato goes on-location to the "Overcoming Childhood Adversity and Trauma: A Healthier Future for NJ Kids" event to talk to Christine Norbut Beyer, Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Children & Families, about the short and long-term effects of children exposed to neglect and abuse and how her department deals with children in these situations.
A new report details the significant challenges and long-range consequences for children who have been exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in New Jersey. Sponsored by The Burke Foundation, The Nicholson Foundation and Turrell Fund, the report, Protecting and Healing Together, demonstrates how the effects of ACEs can be alleviated through a targeted and comprehensive statewide response.
The foundations that sponsored the report are interested in hearing from community voices across New Jersey to inform the ongoing work to combat ACEs in the state. Please fill out the form on the ACEs Collaborative site to let them know what you think of the information contained within this report, and how you can help play a role in the development of an ACEs Action Plan for New Jersey.
