The summer of 2021 marks the eleven year anniversary of NJ Parent Link, the State of New Jersey's web-based Early Childhood, Parenting and Professional Resource Center

NJ Parent Link is a recognized best practice model for innovative IT/digital communication between government and citizens. (National Association of State Chief Information Officers, 2011)

NJ Parent Link is a broad based public/private initiative supported by a federal Health Resources & Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Block Grant (Title V of the Social Security Act).
New Jersey's Department of Health is the lead agency for the project, coordinating over 30 participating government service units.

The focus of NJ Parent Link is to meet the information and resource needs of expectant parents, families with young children (newborns to children entering kindergarten) and professional stakeholders vested in the health & well-being of New Jersey's children & families. Parenting and support resources for families with older children, school aged to young adulthood, are also available.
State, federal and community resources are included.

The goals of NJ Parent Link are to improve the accessibility, coordination and delivery of services and resources to expectant parents and families with young children; improve the communication capabilities between the public and private sectors; and provide the IT foundation for inter/intra agency service collaborations and policy development.

Website content includes health & development, early learning, parenting and family support resources. Family milestone topics include pre-conceptual/prenatal health, kindergarten readiness, back to work/staying at home and parenting older siblings. All educational and promotional materials for the site are downloadable, including the NJ Parent Link homepage, designed as a teaching tool for new parents.

Website community building features include: tailored subscription services, easy access county contacts/local links listings, continuing education/leadership postings, video testimonials, a children's art gallery, an En Espanol feature, and a translation service with over 50 languages.

Website linkages are quite comprehensive and are designed to facilitate parents' and professionals' ease of use with government services and resources. The website's breakout categories are designed to fulfill key requirements for early childhood systems building and provide the necessary framework for interdepartmental collaboration.

Data collection and quality assurance markers are weaved throughout the website to maximize assessment capabilities, facilitate real time opportunities for collaboration within the early childhood community, provide support for shared statewide goals and better coordinate resources. NJ State inter-departmental service algorithms and mailing lists have also been developed and include a distribution list of over 15,000 NJ based licensed/certified health, education, child care and social service agencies/contact points.

Promotion of the NJ Parent Link website/initiative is facilitated via Friends of NJ Parent Link
New Jersey State and community partners vested in the early childhood and parenting community.
