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

Camden County CIACCI/DD Subcommittee
DCF / Division of Children’s System of Care (CSOC) recognizes that youth with intellectual and developmental challenges (I/DD), and their family, require a unique set of supports and services to achieve optimum functioning and stability in their home, school, and community. The role of the CIACC’s as the county based planning body for children’s services is responsible for forming partnerships with agencies and individual service providers who provide quality services to children and families. These partnerships are the key to providing quality services to youth with intellectual and developmental challenges and their families. The I/DD Subcommittee is charged with the following tasks.
- Engage local public and private providers of services to youth with I/DD into the CIACC.
- Develop partnerships with DD service providers and local child serving agencies and system partners.
- Coordinate resources for youth with I/DD and their families with a focus on youth being serviced by the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP).
- Provide cross training between I/DD service providers and child serving agencies and systems in local communities.
- Provide information to families, youth and young adults with I/DD challenges regarding services available to support them in their community including services available through CSOC
- Assist young adults as they transition to the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS) by providing information and linkage to appropriate community resources.
