Central Area Motivation Program (CAMP) Founded (August 1965)

A project co-funded by the Central Area Community Council and the Seattle Urban League, CAMP is one of Washington’s oldest community organizations that still operates today as Byrd Barr Place in the Central District. Since the 1960s, the organization has worked to provide economic support to Seattle’s low-income community to break the cycle of poverty with the aim of making households self-sufficient.
