The CAC is intended to enable consumers, which will comprise a majority of the CAC, to take an active role in improving their own health and that of their family and community members.
Members of the CAC will be recruited to represent the diversity of the community including race/ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, and geographic location, should possess a collaborative working style, and provide expertised and insight in the area of mental health, addictions, wellness promotion, education, housing, senior services, culturally specific health services, children and youth services, corrections and public safety, disability services, and health disparities. Individuals with a broad community perspective on health matters will be preferred.
All meetings will take place at the Camden Coalition offices, 800 Cooper Street, 8th Floor, Camden, NJ 08102. The CAC is seeking those who can commit 3 to 6 hours per month to attend monthly meetings and/or special events. We value your time as a volunteer so dinner, transportation, translation services, and childcare will be provided as needed.
