COVID-19 community resource reference guide

As the COVID-19 pandemic affects Camden and South Jersey, our care teams are continuing to support the vulnerable individuals we serve. As part of our new COVID-19 response workflows, each day, we are gathering updates from our partner organizations about their current operational status so we can pass this information along to patients, providers, and other community partners.

This page will be updated Mondays through Fridays with new information about services and resources available in Camden and South Jersey. Please check back frequently as we will post new information as it becomes available.

If you have questions about any of the services listed here, please call them directly. For more information about services in South Jersey generally, visit My Resource Pal.
