Parents Anonymous of New Jersey

Parents Anonymous of New Jersey, Inc. is a statewide non-profit organization whose mission is to protect children by strengthening families.

Parents Anonymous accomplishes its mission through:

  • free, weekly, community based peer support groups
  • a 24-hour Stressline dedicated to family issues, 1-800-THE-KIDS (1-800-843-5437), is available  in New Jersey 24 hours/7 days a week.

All services to parents are free and absolutely confidential. Because groups are community based, they are culturally appropriate and readily accessible.

Parents Anonymous is volunteer-based. Every year hundreds of volunteers give thousands of hours to help a parent and save a child. Contributions to Parents Anonymous of NJ help ensure the safety of New Jersey children.

Every Parents Anonymous Group follows our unique self-help model where a trained facilitator and parent leader provide a safe, confidential environment in which to share, vent and learn.

To start a group in your community, complete the application form found in Volunteer Opportunities at or call the Parents Anonymous office at 609 585-7666.  You can also get support through their on-line Group Chat.
