Support a Program
You, your company, or granting foundation may have a specific investment preference, such as a scholarship for one of our students, a night’s meal and rest for one of our homeless neighbors, a service experience for one of our Romero Center student participants, or help us to buy abandoned properties for our housing operations. The following are several of the programs for which we need support for each of our Ministries.
“Adopt a Home” Program
Make an investment in the purchase of a property or contribute to the renovation costs on a home. With literally thousands of abandoned homes in the City and with countless hopeful residents seeking the chance to own their own home, you can help make that possible by supporting our acquisition and construction efforts. Request more information.
“Support a Scholar” Program
Your investment in the education of students will have a profound impact on their lives. We provide scholarships to students in our Elementary School to attend Catholic high schools, and to graduates of our Youth Outreach Program, “L.U.C.Y.”
, to attend college. An investment of $5,000 would support a year’s education for a student. Request more information.
“Adopt a Classroom” Program
At our Child Development Center
, we need support to upgrade our computer equipment, replace old furnishings, and buy needed educational materials for our seventy-five 3 and 4 year old children. We are also launching a capital campaign project to expand our facilities to serve more of Camden’s children. Your support can help both goals. Request more information.
“A Week of Service” Program
At Romero Center Ministries
, we serve nearly 2000 students and young adults every year, providing intensive service and reflection programs devoted to helping them understand their faith and deepen their obligation to answer the “call to serve”. With a contribution of $300, you can underwrite a week-long service retreat for a student. Request more information
“Help for the Homeless”
With an estimated 1000 homeless citizens of Camden, the need for support is greater than ever. A $1,000 gift will fund a full night’s operation of our Joseph’s House Café, providing a safe, warm night’s rest, a good meal and other services for 50 people. A gift of just $38 allows us to serve to one person for a night. Request more information.
