CAM Client Services
CAM focuses its efforts on helping families who have experienced an unexpected emergency which has resulted in a financial hardship. Each client will discuss their personal situation with a counselor who will assess their needs and determine the type of assistance that will best aid the family. Aid includes, but is not limited to, the following types of assistance:
- Rent or Mortgage CAM may pay a portion of a client’s current month rent or mortgage. The client is required to pay the balance of the amount due, or have a pledge for that amount, prior to CAM’s paying the pledged amount.
- Utilities CAM may pay a portion of the past due balance on a utility bill. The client is required to pay the balance of the amount past due, or have a pledge for that amount, prior to CAM’s paying the pledged amount.
- Food CAM may provide food and/or toiletries from the CAM Food Pantry.
- Clothing CAM may provide a clothing voucher to be used at Angels’ Attic, CAM’s resale store. This enables the client to select clothing for themselves and their family members.
- Household Goods/Furniture CAM may provide household goods or furniture for a family. This includes linens, dishes, and other household items. Some items are available in the Client Services Office. For other items, a client may be given a voucher to Angels’ Attic, CAM’s resale store. This enables the client to select their needed household items.
- Special Delivery CAM understands how difficult it can be for the elderly and disabled to obtain life’s necessities on a limited income. CAM offers a Special Delivery program for qualified clients.
