Six Camden agencies that help the city’s at-risk youth, homeless and parolee populations received a boost this week in the form of federal and state grants.
The New Jersey Department of State announced Wednesday that its Office of Faith-Based Initiatives would distribute $1.2 million to organizations dedicated to serving the Garden State’s “most vulnerable” residents. The recipients are:
Hopeworks ’N Camden and the Hispanic Family Center. $25,000 each for services to support at-risk youth, including gang prevention programs, homework assistance and tutoring, and promoting entrepreneurial initiatives.
New Life Community Development Corp. $20,000 to help disabled seniors live independently.
