Through the framework of the Covenant for Children, Youth and Families, CPAC focuses on strength-based approaches to ensure equitable access and eliminate implicit bias.

Regionally, CPAC administers the Southern New Jersey Continuum of Care for homeless prevention for Camden, Gloucester, Cumberland and Cape May counties.
Last year CPAC’s efforts supported over 4000 children and families and over 200 senior volunteers.
The event will acknowledge and honor individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the Camden County human services community. CPAC will introduce an Award in the name of Helen F. Spiegel, former Board of Trustee member and lifetime humanitarian and advocate in Camden County. Helen’s nephew David Spector is serving his first term on the CPAC Board of Trustees as Vice Chairperson.
