We are Coordinated Assistance Ministries Inc. est. 1993
The Mission of Coordinated Assistance Ministries is to unify the assistance ministries of the religious community, show God's love, meet needs not being met by community agencies, and cooperate with social service agencies in meeting the needs of our community.
Outside view of the CAM building
We are an ecumenical, religious organization, not another "money source" but a "people source" of aid, and Community Service Provider for Center Township Trustees..
We exist through generous donations of churches, organizations, and individuals of our wonderful community. Our service area includes Howard, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Miami and Tipton Counties.
Each year we serve over a thousand individuals and families. Our doors are open each week day as a Day Shelter. Those in need may come in for a cup of coffee, a donut and fellowship. Clients needing help can see the Supervisor who assesses their needs and helps them in accessing government and private assistance programs.
CAM Inc shelters up to 11 homeless men on any given night throughout the CAM building and through our Bill Hudson Project. Plus, three families are housed in our Family Hope Center, and 11 housed in our CAM Permanent Housing.
CAM Inc in a Nutshell
Our Primary Goal - Moving People Out of Homelessness
Across the nation, why homelessness? Low paying jobs, lack of affordable housing, lack of education, drug and alcohol abuse, medical/mental difficulties, or circumstances that arise in life.
How do people move out of homelessness? CAM provides a network of aid through our match-up with individuals, churches and agencies. People with no means to move out of homelessness cannot do it without a"hand-up."
Reasons a person would need CAM
To achieve our primary goal -Matching people with Churches and people-to- people is key.
