The plan for HMG NJ is to develop a statewide system that builds
upon the state’s expanding work in early childhood to improve
coordination and integration, and streamline services across
systems of care within four core departments—Child Welfare, Health,
Human Services, and Education. As a result, pregnant women and
families of infants and young children (to age eight) will have easier
and earlier access to a range of prevention, early intervention,
treatment and support services; ongoing education to promote healthy
pregnancies/ positive birth outcomes, healthy infant/child growth and
development, and nurturing parent-child relationships.
