Child & Family Resource Services (CFRS) helps families find, select, and pay for child care. CFRS is committed to the belief that all children deserve access to quality, affordable child care that is essential to maintaining family integrity and stability For families with young children, child care is part of their daily routine. Working parents rely on quality child care to ensure that their children are well-cared for while they work to support their families. Parents want their children in safe, nurturing environments that provide children with the skills necessary to enter school ready to learn and ensure they have early childhood experiences that help them become successful.

CFRS meets a need that no one else does by providing the bridge between parents, providers, and policy makers by offering a unique blend of direct services and planning expertise. We continue our work of strengthening our families and communities with our focus on early care and education. It is through our partnerships with our communities, parents and early education providers that we make a difference in the lives of children and families.

Grow NJ Kids is the name of New Jersey's emerging quality rating and improvement system. It is designed to create universal standards of quality for all child care and early education programs throughout the state. Programs will not just be assessed and rated. Rather, participants will be encouraged to make their programs even better through training and other incentives made available to them. To improve the quality of child care programs, CFRS provides training and technical assistance to help providers meet the social, emotional, physical and cognitive needs of children. CFRS administers child care subsidy to Hunterdon, Sussex and Warren County families that are income eligible and in full time work, college, or training. Free and confidential referrals are given to parents for all regulated child care options. We also offer on-line referrals, 24 hours a day that can be accessed through our agency's website at www.norwescap.org.

  • Economic and Employment Building

Open Letter from Terry Newhard, Executive Director NORWESCAP

They say that every organization has a set of values, whether or not they are written down. The values guide the perspective of the organization as well as its actions. To me, values are what guide the organization when they are tested in difficult situations and show up in the agency’s culture. Recently, our board and staff reflected on our core priorities and created a new values statement based on what we believe is true.

VALUE-We will be dedicated to providing value to our clients, community and our co-workers;
ADVENTUROUS-We will be adventurous, creative and innovative in bringing new resources to impacting poverty and improving our communities;
LOYAL-We will be loyal stewards holding the organization in the highest esteem and in trust for the public and the community;
UNIFIED-We will be one unified agency representing the promise and hope of every person.
EMPATHETIC-We will be empathetic, understanding, nonjudgmental with our clients and passionate in our approaches to impacting poverty. In your interactions with NORWESCAP, we anticipate that you will experience these values in our actions and behaviors. While nothing in this world is perfect, if we consistently stray from these values, you should “call us out on it” and let me know.

Our goal is to live our mission, vision and values so we can be the leader in community service and the catalyst for our clients to experience changed lives.
