Statistics show that 1 in 8 people struggle with hunger in the United States. That's appoximately 41 million people with nearly 13 million of those being children and more than 5 million being seniors. We help to feed the hungry in our community.
In response to increasing numbers of homeless families in Camden and the need for a comprehensive approach, we sought after a systemic method to combat poverty and homelessness among families through implementing neighborhood revitalization programs as well as providing shelter during harsh winter periods.
TRAINING / EMPLOYMENT
We offer training and apprenticeship programs to help prepare individuals to become a productive part of the workforce. We believe that education, training and helping people to obtain gainful employment is at the heart of revitalizing the community.
Many Camden residents lack access to reliable transportation for job interviews, medical appointments and even trips to the grocery store so they rely upon a less nutritious selection of food offered at neighborhood convenience stores. We also assist our community by providing much needed transportation.
