DREAMS come true in Camden for aging out youth

Camden DREAMS is a permanent, affordable and supportive housing development sponsored by Center for Family Services. When completed at the end of September 2007, the site will provide thirteen (13) permanent, affordable and supportive efficiency units for very low income aging out youth who were homeless. Every unit will have its own kitchen and bathroom.
