The Mission of the Camden County Family Support Organization is to assist families with children who have behavioral or mental health issues in the Child's Behavioral Health Systems. We will ensure the family voice is heard in all planning, coordination and delivery of services. As parents who have experienced these issues with our own children, we will work with the families by providing face-to-face support, offer appropriate education and promote self-advocacy.
SUPPORT We provide intensive Face-to Face support to families in the Care Management Organization and caregivers at the place and time that is most convenient for them. We also provide support by phone, in case a visit is not convenient for the family. We attend Child Family Team Meetings, Individual Education Plan meetings and other pertinent meetings regarding the family.
EDUCATIONWe provide education to our families and communities. We educate families on an individual basis as needed. We provide support groups and workshops on topics that address the needs of our families.
ADVOCACYWe provide advocacy in many forums. On an individual basis, we advocate for our families needs. In addition, we advocate for families as a whole within the various systems which include Juvenile Justice, DYFS, Mental Heath, Education and Medicaid. We also advocate at the State and Federal levels. We attend pertinent meetings and hearings. We ensure that the “Family Voice” is heard at all levels.
