Family CONNECT is a 12-week in-home supportive service for children with medical needs living in Camden County. Family Connect provides support services to stabilize families and ensure the well-being of children with medical needs. We identify and build on family strengths, helping to reduce the level of stress, prevent out-of-home placement, and ensure a child's medical needs are met.
Services include support and advocacy to help families take care of children with medical needs. We support families in working with schools, landlords, doctors, and others in the family sphere to ensure the child's medical needs are met. Family Connect also provides:
- individual and family counseling
- parent education and support
- connection to resources for child care, housing, substance abuse treatment, literacy/education, job training/employment
All services through the Family CONNECT program are free and voluntary.
