HO ARE WE?
 
The mission of the Community Assistance Ministry (C.A.M.) is to meet the urgent needs of the residents of Venice and Nokomis, FL and the homeless, with dignity and respect. Many of those served find themselves in the situation of having to decide between paying rent or putting food on the table for their family.  Through food donations from the community, church members, and various "food partners" from whom we purchase food at a discount, we do what we can to make their choice a little easier.
