The effects of Hurricane Sandy are still being felt by thousands of New Jerseyans, and we want to provide as much support as possible. Hurricane Sandy was the worst storm to hit New Jersey. It has created a great deal of stress, frustration, and anxiety for families, especially those with younger children.
There are many services and resources available to help. The state departments of Children and Families, Education, Health, and Human Services, along with other partners are committed to helping.
