Early Childhood Success

Children's System

CPAC manages the Children’s System in Camden County, which includes the Children’s Interagency Coordinating Council, Commission on Child Abuse and Missing Children, and the Camden County Council for Young Children. 

Children’s Interagency 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.
