Joseph’s House, operated by Saint Joseph’s Carpenter Society, was originally scheduled to operate through March 31, 2011. Due to Camden’s overwhelming need for an overnight shelter, Joseph’s House wanted to remain open for one more month as the cold weather continued to hit the area. More than just providing a warm place to sleep, staying open an additional month will enable staff to continue to connect clients to the services they need to further stabilize their lives. It will also help Joseph’s House to continue their mission, which is to collaborate with individuals and organizations in providing opportunities for Camden’s growing homeless population to be safe, supported, and empowered to permanently improve their situations and circumstances.
Our Executive Director, Mimi Box, volunteered at Joseph’s House in February and wrote a touching account of her experience. To read her story, please click HERE.
