The Camp Washington Community Board, Inc. is a development corporation founded in 1975 that specializes in saving, rehabbing, and selling single-family houses in Camp. These houses have been abandoned, foreclosed, or are in terrible shape. The community board puts these houses back on line, first by completely renovating the homes, and, then, by finding good homeowners to live in them.
