Our History

Our History

Center For Family Services proudly celebrates our 100 year history. 

Our history in Camden City and the surrounding region dates back to 1920 when we offered services to children and families in need through the Women's Church Mission. While many things have changed over the last 100 years, our responsiveness to the needs of children and families has remained constant.

Our services continue to meet the changing needs in our community.  Through high quality services, blended with personalized care, we help people of all ages to reach their highest potential. Your support of our work helps to make our world a better place. 

Join us as we reflect on our 100 year journey.
