We reach more than 65,000 individuals and families each year at our 90 locations, including 10,000 youth.  CAMBA serves a diverse cross section of New Yorkers from new mothers in Brownsville to job seekers in the Rockaways. More than half of our clients are immigrants and refugees from around the globe. Over 85% of our families are in living in poverty, reflecting the challenges faced by nearly 1.7 million New Yorkers today.

Short Term Housing Program: CAMBA’s Short Term Housing Program (STHP) provides 50 units of congregate and transitional housing to PLWHA who are homeless or at serious risk of homelessness.  There are 8 clients residing at CAMBA’s congregate facility located at 27 Winthrop Street and 42 clients living in community apartments. There are 7 families units, 16 two-bedroom and 1 three bedroom units which are shared by individuals.  Program staff ensure that all apartments are in close proximity to public transportation and accessible to other amenities such as health care, shopping, laundry and other necessary services.  STHP housing program provides a model of service that addresses the interrelated problems of HIV and homelessness. Through our 24 hour congregate residence and the apartments in the community, we prepare our clients for permanent housing.  Clients receive case management services and housing readiness training in a supportive environment which helps to prepare clients to find and maintain permanent, stable housing.
