Senior & Emergency Services

Senior Services

Camden City Seniors are invited to register with the Department of Human Services every year. Registered Seniors with the department are invited to participate in programs throughout the year that are designed to improve the quality of life for our older citizens. These includes programs geared towards recreation, fitness, fun and safety.

Emergency Services

Residents in the city who have encountered hardship for a variety of reasons and as a result find themselves struggling pay for rent or utilities may qualify for one of several programs geared towards homelessness prevention.
