Legislative Initiatives

The Family Success Institute is proud to work hand-in-hand with several New Jersey legislators in order to introduce and shepherd key pieces of legislation that support family success for all. Learn more about our current legislative initiatives below.

Bill of Rights for Children & Families (S1726/A3323)

This bill establishes the “Children, Youth & Families Bill of Rights” to recognize and protect the rights of those groups, which for too long have been enjoyed as a privilege only for some.

If passed, this bill makes New Jersey the first state in the nation to offer every family access to the resources, opportunities and supports needed to successfully raise children from birth to adulthood. Its companion bill (below, S2887/A828), provides the framework with which to do this.

Community Recovery & Family Success Act (S2887/A828)

This bill begins our desired transformational shift in state policy, funding and practice by establishing a state-wide Council for Community Recovery and Family Success and 21 county-level councils, each charged with organizing community-based family success service networks.

The bill also appropriates $772.6 million to invest in these holistic, community-driven service networks to ensure that all New Jersey families have the resources and opportunities to succeed.
