Love begins at home.
The words of Mother Teresa -“Love begins at home” – serve as the motto of The Diocesan Housing Services Corporation of the Diocese of Camden (DHSC). They form a part of a deeper thought, conveyed by Mother Teresa in her 1979 Nobel Peace Prize lecture:
Because I believe that love begins at home, and if we can create a home for the poor – I think that more and more love will spread.
It is in this spirit of love and service that DHSC was established with the mission of providing quality affordable housing for low and moderate income households in New Jersey’s six southern counties (Atlantic, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem).
DHSC operates a portfolio of more than 700 apartment units with a special emphasis on serving senior citizens and persons with disabilities. With a strong team of property management, maintenance and social service professionals, DHSC strives to be the housing of choice for eligible individuals and families in the communities we serve.
Our work is rooted in the laws, teachings, social ministry and moral practices of the Roman Catholic Church and we provide services to people in need on a non-sectarian and non-discriminatory basis.
