About Us

In our fifth decade of service, CAMBA remains committed to providing resources and support that build a foundation of economic stability, educational fulfillment, strong families, and healthy lives.

CAMBA serves more than 65,000 individuals and families each year, citywide, including 10,000 youth. Our 160+ programs in 95 locations improve the lives of a diverse cross section of New Yorkers. From homelessness prevention in Staten Island to supportive housing in the Bronx; from employment training in Manhattan to after school programs and college access in Brooklyn; from family shelter and support in Queens to increasing affordable housing across the city, CAMBA provides holistic services to help struggling New Yorkers stabilize their lives and become self-sufficient.

More than half of our clients are immigrants and refugees from around the globe. Over 85% of our families live in poverty. We’re working to change that dynamic so individuals, families, and New York City communities can thrive and succeed.
