CAM, is a people to people ministry. Many of our volunteers and employees are clients that we have helped in the past. This is our twenty sixth year. There are some issues that we are counting on this fundraiser to help with. We are looking at replacing two central air units this spring. Our main building at 210 N Market is in need of new gutters, and our public kitchen, in this same building, needs repair. 50 – 75 people a day has taken its toll. On our Facebook page “Cam Hope” you can read a rendition of a lot of the services we provide for people in our community. It takes a city, a state, a nation! ❤️
In 2018, We housed 69 Men – Upstairs & Downstairs
In 2018 We Housed 58 People In The Family Hope Center
- 15 Fathers
- 16 Mothers
- 20 Children
- 7 Teens

Dear C.A.M. Community,
In recognition of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week (November 16th-20th) the “5ks for $5000” Fundraiser will take place. Monday through Friday of that week, a group or individual will run 3.1 miles in honor of various segments of the homeless population- families, children, individuals in recovery, youth & young adults and veterans. A video of each participant finishing their run will be posted on the CAM Hope Facebook Page. We invite you to support this event by making a donation to C.A.M. in honor of the runner of your choice or the homeless population of your choice. We need your help to reach our goal! Partner with us as we make a difference in the lives of individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
