Circle of Care is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to assisting Passaic County multiple-needs children and their families.

We are a Care Management Organization (CMO) that partners with families to design, implement, and manage Individual Service Plans for children with complex needs using both informal and community support

We believe in a model of care that is family-driven, culturally competent, and community-based. Using both formal and informal supports, we build on the strengths of the family and the community to enhance the quality of life for the children we serve.

We strive to creatively discover existing or new resources for children with emotional and behavioral problems, and their families to ensure that services are responsibly delivered when and where they are needed, with documented results.
