What we do
We primarily help children who don’t have families able to care for
them, and support children, young adults, the elderly and their families
through the everyday challenges and transitions in life. With your generous
support, we’ve been helping the most vulnerable people in our community
improve their lives for more than 100 years. Our services include:

Our mission is to preserve, protect, and when needed, provide families.
Motivated by compassion for vulnerable children, young adults, frail elderly and their families, we provide high quality and innovative
services that meet their social, educational and emotional needs.

Message from Bob Jones, President & CEO and John Kandravy, Board Chair
Imagine graduating from high school and immediately having to live on your own, without the guidance and support of
your parents. Then imagine having the responsibility of working full-time, paying rent for an apartment, and meeting all other living
expenses, with no one you can fall back on for help. For many of the young adults living in foster care, this is the sad reality they face.
Worse, most of these teenagers have also suffered severe trauma, and are often coping with mental health or other medical
conditions. The prospect of “aging out” of foster care can be terrifying to them.
Children’s Aid and Family Services is constantly searching for innovative, practical solutions to the very real and ever-changing
problems encountered by those we serve. During the past several months we have devoted much energy to the challenges facing
those aging out of care. We want these young people to know they are lifelong members of our agency family, and are welcome to
look to us for support during times of difficulty in their lives. It is no longer enough for us to give them a strong foundation for adulthood:
we also have to be committed to help stabilize and build on this foundation longer term if we are to have a truly lasting impact.
Some of the changes we introduced in 2007 included measures to help us stay in touch with the teenagers that leave each year.
We launched a formalized outreach program that involves a monthly phone call, and a quarterly survey that asks questions such
as, “Are you in school?,” “Are you working?,” or “Have you seen a doctor recently?” The feedback assists agency staff in determining
if the teenagers need help. Even more important is the fact the teenagers know there is someone here for them,and that they can
reach out to us if they need to.
The Phase II Mentoring program is another new way for us to stay connected with former clients. Young people leaving
foster care frequently have been let down by the adults in their lives, and lack any relationship with a significant adult. Mentors can
fulfill this role. Historically, mentors have supported teenagers until they have graduated high school. However, our new Phase II mentors
will stay in contact with their “match,” even after he or she has graduated high school and left the agency’s care. For instance, the
mentee may spend holidays at the mentor’s home. Because the mentor and mentee become close, the mentor usually knows if
the mentee’s life is not going well, and will counsel him or her to contact the agency for help.
We continue to explore other ways to build on these innovations, as well as to better prepare the children and teens currently in our
care for the world beyond foster care. Thanks to a grant from the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, we are beginning to implement a
new model of specialized clinical care for severely traumatized and wounded children that will be the most advanced of its
type in the U.S. We are building on the “life skills” program provided to the teenagers, and have strengthened the level of medical support
we provide, so that we can meet the increasingly challenging and complex emotional and physical needs of the children we serve.
The agency received approval to launch a new model of foster care in NJ, Professional Foster Homes, to be staffed by agency employees and to support three to four teenagers. Thanks to the Helen’s Hope Foundation, two such homes will be opened in 2008.
Further, thanks to another very generous individual gift, we have been able to launch a huge advertising and PR outreach campaign
to help recruit foster and adoptive families, and bring the hope of a permanent family to many more children. To date, we
have seen a more than an 80 percent increase in inquiries from potential parents. The campaign will be ongoing through December 2009.
As you will see in the highlights on the next page, and throughout the pages of this annual report, our quest to be the premier
New Jersey nonprofit provider of innovative, practical solutions for our clients is not isolated to those in our foster care programs.
The agency has continued to expand and
evolve to meet changing needs, and to
deliver the gold-standard of care to all
those we serve. As always, we can only
do so because of your continued help and
commitment. We are fortunate that so
many people choose to “get involved” to
help make a difference in the lives of others.
Thanks to your support in 2007,
we were able to bring hope to many
thousands of vulnerable infants, children,
young adults, frail elderly, and their families.
In 2007, we also broadened the scope of the Thomas R.S. Burgin Education Fund. As before, this fund continues to provide

source of emergency funding for any former client of one of our foster care programs. In recent months, funds have been provided to
cover the deposit on a rental apartment, to pay the phone bill of a teenager who was hospitalized, and to fix the transmission in a car so
that the client could continue to get to work. Such payments have been a lifeline to these young adults and have enabled them to
stay focused on their goals and keep their lives on track.

2007 Memorable Moments
Some dedicated volunteers from
The Depot (l.-r.): Kathy Handel,
Karen Julius, Mary Rose Coller,
and Beth Sciaino.
Thank you to the hardworking,
talented volunteers at The Depot,
an all-volunteer gift and craft shop,
who had a record year and contributed
more than $230,000 to the agency
in 2007.
The agency participated in Hoop-A-Paluza,
a family friendly fundraising event that
included a basketball foul shot contest
and carnival-style entertainment. The
event raised valuable funds for the
Boarder Babies foster care program.
Former New Jersey Net Kerry Kittles lent
some star power to Hoop-A-Paluza (l.-r.):
Lisa Dolmatz of Children’s Aid and Family
Services, Kerry Kittles, and Elexis.
The agency’s
Elder Care program expanded
its staff with the
addition of a
sign language
interpreter for
the population of
deaf seniors it
serves. The program also implemented “brain games” for the
seniors, in response to significant research that
indicates older people benefit from exercising
their brain muscles. The games encourage
socialization, cognitive functioning and reminiscence, and help the seniors remain engaged.
The Baby Basics program, which provides
nutritional formula and diapers to lowincome families in Bergen County with
children ages infant through two years,
moved its Englewood distribution center
to the Center for Food Action. The new
site enabled the program to serve more
needy families in the southeast Bergen
area. Moreover, the families served by
this vital program increased by 30 percent
in 2007. The program also received a
generous $25,000 donation from Boiling
Springs Savings Bank to purchase a van
to collect formula and diapers from
the individuals and organizations that
hold drives.
The Kindergarten class of the Turrell Child Care & Early Learning Center was part of a pilot
program in the U.S. for Zippy’s Friends, a program that helps young children to develop
coping and social skills. Zippy’s Friends was launched by the U.K.-based Partnership for
Children, and covers issues that are important to the development of young children —
friendship, communication, feeling lonely,
bullying, dealing with change and loss, and
making a new start.
Students from the Kindergarten
class at Turrell Child Care & Early
Learning Center participate in
Zippy’s Friends.

Our Adoptive and Foster Care Parents
Most of the children in the agency’s care have suffered severe abuse
and neglect, moved through numerous temporary foster placements, and
have never had a permanent, loving family to care for them. There are
many extraordinary individuals who answer the call to become a foster or
adoptive parent. By providing a child with a nurturing environment and a
sense of stability, they are helping the child to heal from the wounds of a
traumatic past and begin to build a more hopeful future.
There are currently more than 50 foster families with the agency, who
care for children ages infant through adolescent. Following are the stories of
three families that illustrate their remarkable devotion to vulnerable children.
Cara Cilento and Carmen Cao always dreamed of adopting
children. In the course of pursing their dream, they searched adoption websites on the internet, and came across a
recommendation for Children’s Aid and Family Services. They called the agency, and went to an informational meeting.
The couple found the staff and adoptive/foster parents they met welcoming and supportive, and decided to go
through the training process. In about three months, they began fostering six-month-old Sam.
“The first night I held Sam, I cried,” says Cara. “I was overwhelmed with joy, as well as some anxiety,
about caring for this baby.”
In just another three months, nine-month-old Keith* came to live with Carmen,
Cara and Sam. Carmen and Cara have adopted Sam, and are in the process of adopting
Keith. Both boys are now two years old.
“Keith is very affectionate, always hugging us, and loves to hold hands when
we shop,” says Carmen. “Sam’s more people-oriented and outgoing.”
Cara and Carmen have embraced their new roles as parents with great enthusiasm,
and hope to adopt a third child in a few years when the boys are five.
*Name changed to protect child’s privacy.
If you’re interested in finding out more about foster care or adoption,
please call 201.226.0300 or visit www.cafsnj.org.
Maria Perdomo was shopping in her hometown of Teaneck, NJ,
11 years ago and noticed a flier from Children’s Aid and Family Services
seeking foster parents. She and her husband, Miguel, had three birth
children, and always loved kids. They had talked about adopting since
they were dating. She took the first step and called the agency, and
the Perdomo family soon underwent training to become a certified
foster family.
The Perdomos have since fostered seven children, three of whom
they have adopted. “At first, the kids have to test you to be sure you’re
not going to abandon them,” says Mrs. Perdomo. “Eventually, they
learn life is stable here, they’re not going to move all the time, and they
feel better about themselves and their situation.”
Fostering has made a huge difference to the children, and also to Mrs. Perdomo.
“I know that if the kids weren’t here, they wouldn’t have certain opportunities, like going to
college,” she says. “I feel like I’m doing something important: I’m changing somebody else’s
life for the better.”
“We love babies!” say George and Lisa Haase enthusiastically when
asked why they became foster parents in the agency’s Boarder Babies program. During
the past nine years, Mr. and Mrs. Haase have cared for11 infants.
Their birth children, Cassie and Tobin, are involved as well. “It’s important to have a
strong family commitment,” says Mrs. Haase. For example, one of
the babies being fostered was recently ill and in the hospital. Cassie
came home from college for the weekend to stay with the baby and
give her parents a rest.
Mrs. Haase began helping children15 years ago, when she
volunteered at University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and
cuddled and rocked newborns whose mothers were unable to take
them home. Eventually, she got to know agency President & CEO
Bob Jones, Ph.D., who was her neighbor. He saw firsthand her love
of babies and invited her on a tour of the agency.
Mr. and Mrs. Haase are devoted to the infants they foster, and even
adopted their son Ghana, who is now 8 years old. “I wish we had
started caring for these babies even earlier,” says Mrs. Haase. “It’s such a remarkable
experience. I would have adopted even more children.”

Our Volunteers
Volunteers play a vital role in the success of a nonprofit organization, generously offering gifts of time, dedication,
and enthusiasm. Children’s Aid and Family Services is extremely fortunate to have the support of several hundred
individuals with projects ranging from office help to babysitting to fundraising and mentoring. They come from all
walks of life, including students, corporate executives, stay-at-home mothers, and retirees. Other generous individuals
get involved by leading a holiday gift drive to benefit children in the agency’s care or by helping the agency maintain
its group homes.
All of these volunteers play an important role in the agency’s ability to continue to serve the most vulnerable
members of our community, and their contributions are incredibly meaningful. The agency values these devoted
individuals, and honors them each May during the Volunteer Appreciation Event.
Many people who volunteer with the agency enjoy working directly with their neighbors in northern New Jersey,
lending a helping hand in various ways. For example, 20 to 30 individuals help run the Baby Basics program, in which
Here are the stories of just a few of the agency’s
dedicated volunteers
Patrick Christie met his mentee, Eric, when he was a school bus driver.
As he got to know Eric, he started to bond with him. He taught him sign language, a skill
he had picked up as a hobby.
Mr. Christie enjoyed their time together, and learned that Eric was living in one of the
agency’s group homes. Mr. Christie eventually got in touch with the agency and started
taking part in the Mentoring program. Shortly after, the two began doing activities together,
such as going to the movies, browsing bookstores and going fishing.
“I’m glad I could be a stable friend for Eric,” says Mr. Christie. “I was able to show him
that I wanted to be part of his life, I chose him. I helped him to see he was important in life,
that he wasn’t a nobody or a throwaway.”
Children’s Aid and Family Services’ Mentor program offers children in the agency’s care
the opportunity to receive adult guidance from a different perspective other than a teacher
or staff member. The mentor/mentee relationship helps to create much-needed stability in
a child’s life.
low-income families with children ages newborn through two years receive
nutritional formula and diapers. The agency has two distribution centers in
Ridgewood and Englewood. These dedicated volunteers purchase supplies,
package and inventory them, as well as distribute them to clients. Other
volunteers help the staff at Turrell Child Care & Early Learning Center, either
by rocking and cuddling the babies, or reading and participating in arts and
crafts projects with the toddlers and preschoolers. And for those who love
looking after little ones, the agency offers the Grandmother’s Babysitting
Club at its Child Welfare office, where volunteers take care of babies and
toddlers in foster care while their parents attend training meetings.
Volunteers also play a vital role in fundraising. Every year, the agency holds two fundraising
events in the spring and fall. Volunteers handle details ranging from mailing invitations to securing auction donations
to raising the agency’s profile in the community.
Danielle Alaimo discovered Children’s Aid and Family Services when she
did a Google search looking for an adoption agency. A Girl Scout of 12 years, Ms. Alaimo
wanted to do something for her Gold award that was focused on children. She contacted
the agency, and began to volunteer.
She started by painting two bathrooms in one of the agency’s group homes for girls.
She purchased art supplies and made bead jewelry, picture frames,
and decorated visors with the girls. Ms. Alaimo was surprised by
the compassion and openness the girls had for her.
“I thought I was going to have a positive effect
on them, but they also had a positive effect on me,”
Ms. Alaimo said. “One girl came up to me, gave me a
huge hug and said, ‘I wish you were my sister.’”
Ms. Alaimo is a dedicated volunteer and supports many
organizations, including the Morristown Soup Kitchen, and
Chilton Memorial Hospital. She attends Villa Walsh Academy
in Morristown, New Jersey where she is the president of a volunteer organization called
Students in Touch Uplifting People (SIT UP).
Our Volunteers
Mickey Capelli became a volunteer for the agency about 18 years ago.
She began working at The Depot, an all-volunteer gift and craft shop that raises funds to benefit Children’s Aid and Family Services, and found it a natural fit since she had a career background in retail.
She has served as a gift buyer, as well as co-director of The Depot. “The Depot is an
amazing place to shop and volunteer,” says Ms. Capelli. “All the volunteers have a close
bond, and are dedicated to their work because they’re helping children.”
Ms. Capelli has seen firsthand the agency’s tremendous growth throughout the past
18 years, as well as the resulting need for more volunteers. She often serves as an advocate,
working to get people involved. “I tell people the agency’s work is so diverse, and
they really must take a tour to see the wonderful work being done,” says Ms. Capelli.
“I know when they see the services offered to vulnerable children, they can’t help but
get interested.”
Dru Pierce was reading her church’s newsletter10 years ago when she
came across an ad asking for volunteers. She got in touch with her church, and
began to volunteer in the Baby Basics program, which provides formula and diapers
to children of low-income parents. Three years ago, the program was adopted by
Children’s Aid and Family Services.
Ms. Pierce’s main responsibilities as a volunteer are to buy supplies and pack
them for the families. Additionally, she is a member of the Baby Basics steering
committee, where she assists in tracking the clients served by the program, and
makes sure their needs are being accommodated. She is also a member of the
committee that organizes the agency’s fall Wine and Food Tasting fundraiser. This
past year she helped put together baskets for the silent auction, and secured a
train tressel sign advertising the event in Ridgewood.
“When I joined the Baby Basics program as a volunteer, I had a young
family, so I sympathize with these families that simply need support to provide
for their children during a difficult, expensive time in their lives,” says Ms. Pierce.
Brigid O’Brien, was looking for meaningful volunteer work after she retired
from a nursing career. Although she and her husband were long-time donors, she was
not aware of the need for volunteers at the Turrell Child Care & Early Learning Center.
When she called to discuss various volunteer opportunities, she learned there were
several available.
Five years ago, she began volunteering in the infant room, for three hours a week. She
helps care for the babies during lunchtime, to give the teachers a break. She plays, feeds
and cuddles with the infants. “I love working in the infant room,” Ms. O’Brien says. “The
staff is professional and skilled, and it’s wonderful to see the babies taken care of so well.”‘
Ms. O’Brien, a master gardener, also volunteered in the creation of the Healing Garden
at the agency’s Ridgewood office, and still helps maintain it. She also donates her time to
READ NOW!, where she reads to children. “There are so many things a volunteer can do
for the agency,” she says. “It doesn’t matter what your skills are like.”
Growing up, Mike Martino was very close to his grandparents and parents.
As a result, he enjoys helping older people. After he retired from a career in finance several
years ago, the coordinator of eldercare services at the Northwest Senior Center invited
him to follow his interests and join as a volunteer.
Mr. Martino uses his computer and financial skills to help the senior citizens at the
Center find the best prescription plans available from Medicare Part D. This is no small task,
as there are approximately 57 such plans, and the vast majority of the seniors he helps lack
computer knowledge. Further, the least expensive alternatives vary
from one individual to another, because they are based on the
medications prescribed and the
pharmacy used. “Many of the
elderly at the Senior Center don’t
realize how much money they
can save,” says Mr. Martino. “When
they see the amount of money
they can save on their drug plan,
they’re thrilled. Volunteering at the
Center is extremely gratifying,
because they really appreciate
the help.”

Jan Lescroart became a volunteer for the Baby Basics program soon after her
Both Carol Whaley and Stephanie Karl, members of the agency’s
Special Events committee, have a background in education, as well as a deep concern for children.
Ms. Whaley has been involved with the agency since 1998, and has served as Secretary and currently as
2nd Vice-Chair of the Board of Trustees. She’s been a member of the Special
Events committee since 2004, and enjoys planning the agency’s annual
spring gala, as well as finding creative ways to bring new people to the
agency. “The agency’s work is important,” Ms. Whaley says. “It brings
nurturing to children, families, and the elderly.”
Ms. Karl, a long-time supporter of numerous nonprofit organizations,
started the foundation Helen’s Hope in honor of her mother. She became
familiar with the agency in 2006, and has been an enthusiastic supporter
through her family’s foundation. She enjoys promoting the work of the
agency, and through her work as President of the Upper Saddle River
Board of Education, encourages children to get involved with the agency.
“My mother and father were big believers in philanthropy,” Ms. Karl
says. “They taught us whatever you have, you share.”
son was born14 years ago. She saw firsthand how expensive it was to have a child, and
couldn’t imagine how low-income families with babies managed.
The Baby Basics program supplies nutritional formula and diapers to low-income
families with children ages two years and younger. “I never realized the tremendous need for
a program like this, even in an area as affluent as Bergen County,” says Ms. Lescroart.
Although Ms. Lescroart has a family and full-time career, she always makes time for the
Baby Basics program. She shops for diapers and nutritional formula – usually purchasing
25 cases of diapers alone per trip - and also participates in the distribution. “I’ve seen many
families go through tough times, and we’re there to help ease their burdens by providing
formula and diapers, and also a place where they can find support by talking to us and the
other parents,” she says.
Ms. Lescroart is also heavily involved in the agency’s fall Wine and Food Tasting
fundraiser, for which she solicits food donations from local restaurants and caterers.
“I have fun at the event,” she says, “Baby Basics is so close to my heart, I can’t imagine
not being involved.”
Erik Sorenson believes that “volunteering is one of life’s pure joys.” He
exemplifies this philosophy through his dedication to Children’s Aid and Family Services,
where he serves as 1st Vice Chair on the Board of Trustees and also as Chair of the
Development Committee.
Mr. Sorenson and his wife, Cornell Chulay, are the parents of four children, one of
whom is adopted. Thus, he has an appreciation of the challenges faced by the children in
the agency’s care that are waiting for an adoptive family. “The children the agency serves
are in tremendous need of nurturing, both emotionally and psychologically,” he says.
“In my humble opinion, they deserve all the help we can give them.”
If you’re inetrested in volunteering, call our
volunteer manager at 201.261.2800 x 222 or
visit www.cafsnj.org.
Mr. Sorenson helps the agency to grow and raise its profile through his efforts in
fundraising, as well as introducing friends to the agency’s work. To that end, he recently

The people who help us make a difference
Agency Endowment and Named Funds
The Anne Goheen Crane Endowment
The agency’s principal endowment fund provides unrestricted funds that can be directed to areas of greatest need. Interest from the
fund provides the agency’s only source of reliable income. It is used to support mission commitments to: keep services accessible
to all, regardless of ability to pay; provide the ability to anticipate changing needs and respond to the unexpected; and to be less
vulnerable to economic fluctuations.
The Ethel G. and Arthur B. Toan, Jr. Fund
This fund provides unrestricted support that can be directed to any area of need within the agency.
The Anne and John Oros Fund
This fund provides dedicated college scholarship support for children who were fostered as infants by the Oros family, and, in the
future, to support other teens who have aged out of foster care and are attending college.
Margaret Pasmantier Community Life Education Fund
Established in memory of Margaret Pasmantier, a long-time agency volunteer, this funds a variety of community educational programs.
Julie Lynne Zipper Memorial Fund
This fund was established in memory of Julie Lynne Zipper, a tragic victim of the World Trade Center attacks of 2001. As a lasting
tribute to Julie and in recognition of her love for the Turrell Child Care & Early Learning Center in Paramus – attended by her son
Jason – the fund provides scholarships for staff members who wish to further their education in early childhood learning.
The Thomas R.S. Burgin Parents Fund
This fund provides financial assistance to teens aging out of foster care and attending college or vocational training. It is also available
to fund tutoring and other special educational needs for children in the agency’s care. This year, we re-focused the fund as a “Parents”
fund so it can also be a source of emergency funding for any former client of one of our foster care programs.
The Barbara Abney Bolger Fund
Newly formed in 2007 in honor of long-standing volunteer and Board member, Barbara Abney Bolger, the Fund will provide for the
maintenance, renovation and other capital needs of the Woodlea and PATH I group homes.
The Leda M. Jadrosich Fund
Established in memory of Leda M. Jadrosich, this fund supports all aspects of the agency’s adoption services for vulnerable infants,
children and teens – from helping them heal to recruiting loving adoptive families for them.
The Ruth L. and William F. Warmington Fund
An endowed fund to support the core infrastructure needs of the agency, such as communications,development, and the
professional development of leadership staff.
