The mission of We Believe in YOU Family Services is to strengthen families living within Camden County. As a resource center, we can achieve this goal by offering various programs that address challenging issues that confront the modern day family.
Through resources and specific programs, WBY offers programs that are inviting, relative and targeted for today’s families. We believe we can make a positive impact on strengthening families, thereby strengthening the Camden County community.
Family services focus on building protective and promotive factors to reduce risk and create optimal outcomes for children, youth and families.
As a Resource Center we assist families in assessing their child care needs, provide counseling to families on the importance of parental resilience and referrals affecting their wellbeing.

This mission is to provide unique educational experiences for members of the club, We Believe in Our Children-WBOC. Different programs through out the year will be developed to provide life lessons to encourage youth to become proactive, positive, and productive citizens.
Summer Camp 2012 is the first event to support this mission. Summer Camp 2012 provides crucial developmental programs for youth, ages 8 -15. Camp activities are focused on nutrition, leadership, life skills and recreation with an educational theme each year. The camp is designed to meet the needs of low income children by providing nutritional meals and activities designed to combat the issue of child obesity.

Our goal is to increase the understanding of various cultures by the student participants. We expect an increase in understanding of various cultures by the student participants. We expect improvements in communication and support between children of different cultures in school, neighborhoods, and households. We hope to see a reduction in school violence between students of different cultures.
Overall, we can expect more supportive learning of school objectives by these students due to improvements in communication.
We have collaborated with the Milton and Betty Katz Jewish Community Center in Cherry Hill and The Princeton International Charter School for a study in Chinese culture.
