People


Barry Bailey Barry Bailey, Executive Director

Barry is a graduate of Madison University with a Masters in Chemical Dependency Counseling. Barry has worked in the Behavioral Health industry for over 35 years and specializes in Adolescent and Family Issues, as well as Juvenile Justice System involved youth. Barry joined Genesis in 1987 and has worked as a Student Assistance Counselor, and he has provided direct service, as well as coordinated all Adolescent Substance Abuse Programs. Barry designed the Comprehensive Adjustment Program (CAP), a Re-entry Day Reporting Program for Juvenile Justice Commission youth being paroled back to their respective communities from Juvenile Prison. This program was established in 2000 and was later adopted as the state day reporting model.

Barry has been responsible for the development and implementation of Genesis' Early Intervention Program (EIP). The EIP program works with Adolescents and Families being referred from a variety of sources and provides family stabilization and prevention services for both parents and adolescents. Schools, Child Protective Services and individual families are this program's primary referral source. Barry facilitates the EIP group sessions, and meets with families participating in the process, and also trains the clinical staff on the unique approach required to ensure the success of the program.

Barry has worked to expand services in southern New Jersey and helped develop the many services offered in the city of Camden, where he has worked for many years. He has provided consulting services to other community treatment providers, which demonstrates his willingness to collaborate to work in the best interest of individuals in need of care.

Barry continues to be intimately involved with the agency's fund raising and public relation efforts, and he works to maximize agency productivity through his management of the entire agency's day-to-day operations which is his primary responsibility as Executive Director.
