Who? CAMP strives to reduce the impact of poverty on families and individuals by providing services, and promoting institutional and community change through advocacy.
CAMP also strives to identify and address the causes of poverty and remove barriers to self-sufficiency faced by the low-income community.
What? The Central Area Motivation Program is located in a 1908 firehouse in the Central Area. The agency serves clients through an Energy Assistance Program, Food Bank, Relicensing, Youth Build and Housing Advocacy.
The interior is currently stark white and institutional. The agency painted two offices with a nice warm tan as the main color with calming accents. These offices are much nicer and the agency would like to create a more friendly and comfortable atmosphere for employees and clients.
We will be painting eight 10x10 offices – each has three walls that will be painted the base color, and the fourth wall will be painted an accent color, one meeting room (15x20) and a main area with high-ceilings and large walls (40x20) with the same approach. CAMP Employees will be pitching in as well and there will be an easy-to-understand plan in place to make the project simple for everyone.
Why? CAMP is a hub of community activity and sees thousands of clients. The more calming and friendly the environment the more effective the agency will be at helping people in need in a pleasant atmosphere.
