After School Program
Summer Safe Haven
July 5th — August 12th
We believe that empowering youth with resources is the most effective means of breaking the cycle of poverty. At Cameron we recognized the need for a group to teach the 4th- 6th grade youth life skills, about respecting themselves and others and being responsible for themselves and others. We created a small group called The R&R Group.
R&R stands for Respect and Responsibility.
Our motto is “Be strong, be confident, be fearless, and stick to your goals.”
Hot Lunch Program
Cameron serves a free hot meal to the public six days a week, Monday-Saturday from 12 - 1:30pm. The meals are filling and nutritious, with fresh fruit, vegetables and dessert items. We also provide our guests with access to other many other services, and people receiving public assistance have the opportunity to work with us, gaining work skills and positive job references.
Groups who volunteer to host a Sunday Celebration meal can design the menu, purchase and prepare the food (either at Cameron or using their own facilities) and serve the meal at Cameron, from 4:30-5:30pm. The host group also provides a brief worship or reflection time.
To sign up please contact Lindsay Jewett – Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or (585) 254-2697.
Emergency Food Pantry
The Cameron Food Pantry is a vital support to our community. Last year (2015) we served 1,130 families totaling 3,254 people in our Emergency Food Pantry.
Families are able to come in and receive food to last them for a few days until they could make ends meet. We use a model called Client Choice, which allows neighbors to choose which foods they want to take home for their families.
