Camden County Habitat for Humanity partners with people, communities, and organizations to foster economic empowerment and sustainable community revitalization by providing home ownership opportunities for those in need through housing construction and rehabilitation, discount home improvement retail outlets, financial education, job training and volunteer organization. Camden County Habitat for Humanity provides services to all people regardless of background, ethnicity, race or religion.
Since 1986 Camden County Habitat for Humanity has helped over 50 families. In 1994 our board initiated the 16 home Clinton Avenue project. This signified our migration from single home development in Camden City to tract development. To further support our community and affiliate, the ReStore was opened in 2008. This 25,000 square foot home improvement retail outlet offers deeply discounted new and used home improvement products, supplies, furniture and appliances to the general public. Earlier in 2011 a restructuring occurred to position the Camden affiliate for the future. This resulted in a two year transitional business plan focused on service expansion and mission sustainability positioning the affiliate to pursue a tract housing development model in Camden City and a scatter project expansion into the entirety of Camden County. Currently we are partnered with the Cooper Foundation and the NRTC in building an additional 16 homes. To date our projects empower more than 50 families, provide over 80,000 dollars annually to Camden’s tax base and have produced over 1 million dollars in new property tax revenue to the city.
