Who We Are: CAMBA is a community of staff, volunteers, clients, donors, neighbors and partners who work together to build an inclusive New York City. CAMBA serves more than 65,000 individuals and families each year, citywide, including almost 13,000 youth. Our 180+ programs in over 100 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.
CAMBA Care Connections (SDOH Pilot): CAMBA is partnering with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH) in a pilot program focused on connecting NYPH patients to services that address a variety of social determinants of health (SDOH). NYPH refers “risking risk” patients, who have at least one social need and two emergency room visits in the past year to CAMBA Care Connections to connect them to care. This pilot program prioritizes needs related to food, transportation and housing, but other SDOH may be identified and addressed as well. The pilot program will be entering its second year this Spring and consists of a full-time Program Manager and Case Manager. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to work with CAMBA and NYPH to develop an efficient closed-loop referral and linkage system.
