Camden Special Services District

In 2011, Cooper’s Ferry Partnership, Camden Special Service District (CSSD), Camden Urban Enterprise Zone, and Camden Mayor Dana L. Redd launched a Re-Entry initiative to provide seasonal employment to ex-offenders in the City of Camden. The program launched in Stockton Park on July 1st, with 16 part-time employees cleaning up the city.

Re-Entry crews pick up trash and debris and empty trash cans in important public spaces throughout the city. Camden Public Works and CSSD are working closely to insure that the Re-Entry employees complement and support the efforts of the Department of Public Works.

The CSSD creates local job opportunities by exclusively hiring Camden residents. CSSD employees aid in garbage and graffiti removal, cleanup initiatives, vacant lot stabilization efforts, and set up for waterfront events. In February 2011, CSSD became a subsidiary of Cooper’s Ferry Partnership; however, the CSSD remained its own independent organization with separate funding and board of directors. The CSSD play a vital role in keeping Downtown Camden clean and safe.
