We are a multidisciplinary nonprofit working to improve care for people with complex health and social needs in Camden, NJ, and across the country.
The Camden Coalition works to advance the field of complex care by implementing person-centered programs and piloting new models that address chronic illness and social barriers to health and wellbeing. Supported by a robust data infrastructure, cross-sector convening, and shared learning, our community-based programs deliver better care to the most vulnerable individuals in Camden and regionally. Our local work also informs our goal of building the field of complex care across the country.
Our mission and vision
The Camden Coalition’s mission is to spark a field and movement that unites communities of caregivers in Camden and across the nation to improve the wellbeing of individuals with complex health and social needs. Our vision is a transformed healthcare system that ensures every individual receives whole-person care rooted in authentic healing relationships.
