Mission Statement

CCFSO MISSION STATEMENT 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 families by providing face to face support, offer appropriate education and promote self-advocacy.

Description

Our History

The Children's Initiative was designed in 1995 by a team of family members of challenged children. In their opinion, the current system of care was not proving successful for the most difficult children and their families. They found that children were entering the system and staying involved in the system for a long period of time. They also discovered that families did not have the opportunity to participate in the care and services their children received. The plan was to design a children's initiative unique to New Jersey and our population.

In its full operational stage, there will be a total of fifteen family support organizations in the state. Each area, ours being Camden County, has a Family Support Organization and a Care Management Organization. Although the roles and responsibilities of the Family Support Organizations and the Care Management Organization are unique, we work as a team to meet the immediate and long-term needs of families as we support, educate and empower.
