This organization supports parents and youths with mental health issues and special needs. NJPC provides educational resources and training to parents so they are aware of their rights and options. The New Jersey Parents' Caucus is dedicated to ending the practice of juveniles being tried as adults and receiving supermax prison sentences. They keep the public informed on what us happening throughout the state as well as the country in regards to the justice system and special needs.
