Passaic County Children’s Interagency Coordinating Council (CIACC)

Working with, and in collaboration with the Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Children’s Interagency Coordinating Council (CIACC) strives to ensure a seamless array of services to the families of Passaic County.

The CIACC serves as the county mechanism to advise DCF on the development and maintenance of a responsive, accessible, and integrated system of care for children, youth and young adults and their families with emotional and behavioral challenges, substance abuse issues, and developmental disabilities.  This is done through the involvement of parents, children, youth and young adults, child-serving agencies, and community representatives. 

The CIACC, through enhanced coordination of system partners, identifies service and resource gaps and priorities for resource development.

The Passaic County CIACC has been directly involved in the development of the System of Care implemented throughout the state of New Jersey.  The goal remains to provide optimal services for our children and families within a system that promotes individual planning, designed by the needs of the family. 

The CIACC is an advisory body and recommendations from the body are made to the Mental Health Board.  The CIACC is also advisory to the Passaic County Department of Human Services and to the New Jersey Department of Children and Families.
