Alana Vega, Kids Count Coordinator

ACNJ, formerly Association for Children of New Jersey, is the trusted, independent voice putting children’s needs first for more than 35 years. Our work results in better laws and policies, more effective funding and stronger services for children and families. And it means that more children are given the chance to grow up safe, healthy and educated.
