CAMDEN, N.J. (KYW Newsradio) — Joseph's House of Camden has been giving the homeless food and a place to stay for nearly a decade.

That won't change, but an expansion and renovation project at the shelter has begun that, when finished, will allow them to do much more for their guests.

"Providing specific substance abuse, mental health, and employment training, and housing location and counseling services that can really help someone move to the next level," explained Joseph's House executive director James Wynn.

"The entire project - the expansion of the day services, the expansion of Joseph's House shelter side where we'll be moving from an 80-bed capacity to a 90-bed capacity - all of that will cost the organization around $1.2 million," added Wynn.
