The Camden Area Community Concerns Council (CACCC) was an independent community organization in the Camden Neighborhood of north Minneapolis which emphasized community input. It was open to all residents and committed to dealing with community problems. The CACCC sought to further community development, educate residents on civic matters, engage in job development for underemployed and unemployed youths, and improve the economic condition of senior citizens. The group sponsored and supported such projects as the creation of a community center, neighborhood beautification, development of a volunteer network to provide support services to senior citizens, and the curtailing of destructive real estate sales practices.
