NEWS & EVENTS
Even though Camden is still named as one of the most impoverished cities in the nation, President Obama choose to visit to congratulate the Camden County Police Department and all in Camden on the great progress the city has made. President Obama called Camden “a celebration of progress” and “a symbol of promise for the nation”. For all of us living in Camden, the City Invincible, we are elated by President Obama’s words and visit!
President Obama spoke with many youth in the city – perhaps providing the inspiration for one Camden youth to become President one day. He also traveled through the streets of the city viewing the recent successes in Camden as well as the hardships that still need to be overcome. Camden residents lined the streets to view President Obama’s motorcade. What a phenomenal day for Camden!

As we have now lived and worked in Camden for over three years, so many incredible people and experiences in the city have touched us deeply. Throughout these years, William has been moved to sketch and paint what is beautiful in Camden. Also, he has been inspired to paint the great hope of what is to come for the people here. All of this led to his new exhibit, Camden Beautiful. Please come experience this exhibit and the beautiful city of Camden..
