TIP (TANF Initiative for Parents)

The TIP - Camden County program helps good parents become great parents.  This program provides parenting skills, education, and welfare-to-work support to expectant women and new mothers with a baby under the age of one.  Program goals include providing the supports to ensure the welfare of children and to stabilize families and promote self-sufficiency. Mothers can receive services up until the baby turns one, provided she is in program compliance.  Participation is renewed in three month increments.
