|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.
(CAM In Spring)
We are an ecumenical, religious organization, not another "money source" but a
"people source" of aid, and Community Service Provider for Center Township
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 13 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, and 5 young women in our Serena Youth Center, with
a house parent.

|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."
