Mission Statement

We offer multi-lingual, culturally sensitive services to low income Camden County youth and young adults ages 12-25 and their families. We accept and welcome all to take part in educational, social, spiritual and service‑oriented programming. We empower youth to form healthy relationships, make good choices, and develop into compassionate and socially responsible adults who make a positive difference in their community. We address all environmental systems that impact the youth -- their home life, peers, schools, and neighborhood environment -- with appropriate programs, resources, and support.

Description

LUCY Outreach was established to address the particular challenges and setbacks-teen delinquency, gang and drug recruitment and involvement, substance abuse in the home, teen pregnancy, a struggling public school system-faced by urban youth growing up in America’s poorest and most dangerous city. In recognizing the critical role that each system-homes, families, schools, neighborhoods and friends-plays in a youth’s world, we seek to enhance their quality of life by filling the void of positive programming, by encouraging participants to work within their community, and by providing community services, resources, and support.
