Mom2Mom Expanding Statewide to Help More Special-Needs Families

Department of Children and Families Commissioner Allison Blake talks about the benefits of Mom2Mom reaching mothers of children with special needs throughout the state on New Jersey 101.5 radio:
Our image was created by the mom of a special needs child. The word “MOM” is a palindrome – it is spelled the same both forwards and backwards. It is also a “mirror image” word which means it can be read the same in its current image and its mirror image. When you look at the number two, in its original image, side by side with its mirror image, they form the shape of a heart.
