The Camden County Board of Freeholders have announced a six-point plan to end homelessness in collaboration with a variety of service organizations.

Programs outlined in the plan range from prison re-entry and seasonal employment to mental health and addiction services. These initiatives, along with partnerships with service organizations, are meant to provide more individualized and effective resources and support to not only the homeless community, but those at risk of becoming homeless.

“We have a moral imperative to aid the most vulnerable members of our community and help them stabilize themselves by getting them off the street and into permanent housing,” said freeholder Carmen Rodriguez. “These programs, when operating together, with organizations coordinating with each other, will ensure a higher success rate and save taxpayers money.”
