"We Ensure that the Independant Family Voice is Heard!"
The Camden County Family Support Organization offers telephone support to family members, and caregivers. We listen and offer advice and support, information on housing, legal support, food banks, etc. and referrals. You use our Warmline during our business hours, Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm.
Under the office of Community Development, we maintain several supports throughout the year. Working with the non-porfit organizations which include (but are not limited to) the Statewide Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN) and Parents Anonymous, the CCFSO strives to provide for their families of children with emotional, behavioral or mental challenges resources, networking and support.
In addition, the CCFSO provides forums, workshops, guest speakers and other special events that inform and empower familiesabout their role in the parent/professional partnership.
Supporting the independant family voice the CCFSO develops and maintains its prescence with our legislators, schools, and buisnesses to gain their support and to provide information. We continue to work within our community to recruit volunteers and donations for the family and children who are part of our organization.
Our parent support groups are every Thursday night, from 6:30-8:30pm. They are FREE meetings and we offer FREE babysitting. Please call our Warmline at (856) 662-2600 for more information about our support groups and upcoming workshops.
What could be more reassuring than finding someone who has been through the same situation as yourself? Here is where you find parents, grandparents and other family members who have experienced the same challenges or taken such pride in the small successes of a child such as our.
Families who are receiving care management services through DCBHS (Division of Child's Behavioral Health Services of the State of New Jersey) under the Camden County Partnership for Children (CMO) have the option to receive peer support on a one to one basis to help get through a difficult time of transition.
We will link you with another family member who has "walked in your shoes". Someone who can help you navigate the mental health, juvenile justice/courts, or educational system, or just listen and understand.
