Assistant Republican Leader Caroline Casagrande, R-Monmouth, was honored today by the New Jersey Alliance for Children, Youth & Families (NJACYF) as its “Child Advocate of the Year.” "Casagrande was nominated by NJACYF member Collier Youth Services, located in Wickatunk, NJ for her advocacy on their behalf.

“I am humbled and honored by this recognition,” said Casagrande at today’s event in Trenton, where she received the prestigious award. “All the NJACYF members should be acknowledged for their tireless efforts, working in the trenches, and fighting to make our society a better place for our children and families. Too often, their work goes unnoticed.

“Each child we reach at an early age reaps measureable benefits down the road for every New Jersey resident” continued Casagrande. “I am proud to advocate on behalf of organizations like Collier who are on the front lines of saving our kids.”

NJACYF is an advocacy and support organization that assists children, families and individuals who are facing emotional, behavioral, or developmental disabilities as well as those with substance abuse disorders. Its member organizations are committed to providing services that give stability and comfort to all people experiencing these challenges.

"Assemblywoman Casagrande has been very supportive of Collier's mission and services," said Paul DeSantis, Director of Residential Programs at Collier. "She gets it!" Their facilities include a middle school, high school and group homes for teenage and young women.

The NJACF says Casagrande is “truly a champion for women and children.”
