Camden County CIACC Educational Partnership Spring 2020 Online Forum Panel Speakers
Camden County Children’s Interagency Coordinating Council
The Camden County CIACC is a local planning body that fosters cross-system service planning for youth with behavioral and emotional health needs, substance use, and/or intellectual and developmental challenges. The CIACC
provides a multidisciplinary forum to develop and maintain a responsive, accessible, and integrated system of care for youth and their families through the involvement of natural family supports and child-serving agencies as partners.
It serves in an advisory capacity to both county government and NJ Department of Children and Families (DCF) in planning for services for youth. The CIACC identifies needs and addresses barriers to effective service delivery, and make appropriate recommendations on programs and policies to ensure a comprehensive system of needed services is maintained within each county. Membership includes families, local system partners, community based organizations, county planning entities, and state representatives
