In Camden. Of Camden.
A partnership between Come to the Table Counseling and Center for Family Life and Recovery
What is the Camden Life Center?
The Camden Life Center is an impact center -this means we are a single location with multiple agencies coming together to act in their areas of strength for the maximum impact and overall benefit of our community. The Camden Life Center is a partnership between Come to the Table Counseling and Center for Family Life and Recovery. The primary goal is to inspire hope, provide help, promote wellness and transform lives with a focus of being in Camden, of Camden, for Camden.
What makes the Camden Life Center different?
The Camden Life Center is different because of its partnerships. Having access to many agencies with differing expertise all working together, you can be sure that you are getting all of the services that you want or need to help you move towards wellness. Having coordinated care between agencies means less frustration as you navigate different programs and services.
What help is already available?
Helio Health offers a wide range of treatment, counseling and support programs for individuals suffering from alcohol, drug, gambling, eating and other mental health disorders.
Many have asked about the origins of the Camden Life Center. The initial dream and beginning steps of the Life Center began in December 2019 when friends decided to purchase 40 Main Street and offer the office space to Come to the Table Counseling to expand needed community services. No one could have anticipated that a conversation among friends about creating one building that houses “everything for real life” (#reallife) would grow and expand so quickly. Within two years and with partnerships with CareNet of CNY, AmeriCorps and Insights of Helio Health, the need for a new building quickly became a pressing issue.
Through the guidance and encouragement of the Community Foundation, Come to the Table Counseling and Center for Family Life and Recovery met to discuss shared desires to support rural communities. This partnership brings together a grassroots Camden initiative with an experienced leader in creating creative programming
