Our development philosophy believes in nourishing both body and soul. The people and the place. These are the keys to building successful and sustainable communities. Neighborhoods to call home. Started in 1984 by our founder, Msgr. Michael Doyle, of Sacred Heart Church, the Heart of Camden’s mission is to restore dignity and quality of life through programs of housing restoration, economic expansion, and human development. We believe families thrive in neighborhoods with core community assets and strong family supports.
