Jamarr's Promise and the Foster Care System

Jamarr Cruz, a nine-year-old boy, was tragically killed in 2009 while under the oversight of New Jersey's Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS). His caseworker was blamed for his death. Kristin Morris, his caseworker and now former employee of New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency, and psychologist Joseph Zielinski, Ph.D., promised to fight for him even after his death by writing the book Jamarr's Promise.
