DCF Superstorm Sandy Recovery Plan - Executive Summary

The planning outlined in this document is based on the reality that New Jersey can expect to experience many negative social impacts following this disaster if we do not effectively and strategically implement and enhance prevention and intervention efforts.  These negative social impacts can, and will, directly impact New Jersey’s overall recovery if not appropriately addressed.  Keeping children safe and families strong is essential to New Jersey’s recovery.
