Children’s Inter-Agency Coordinating Council (CIACC)

The Camden County Inter-Agency Coordinating Council (CIACC) serves as the mechanism to develop and maintain a responsive, accessible, and integrated system of care for children with special social, emotional, and behavioral needs to support them and their families. The CIACC operates through the involvement of parents, consumers, youth, child-serving agencies and hospitals. The CIACC’s mandate is to monitor, guide and integrate the existing traditional system of children’s services with the new statewide services as they are being created and implemented.

The CIACC has three (4) subcommittees under it, which are: 

  • Educational Partnership Subcommittee 

  • Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Subcommittee

  • Youth Substance Use Prevention Subcommittee (Ad-Hoc)

  • Family Voice Subcommittee
