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, where all children and adults have access to the resources and supports they need to thrive. We take a comprehensive approach by offering more than 160 integrated programs in: Education & Youth Development, Family Support, Job Training & Employment Support Services, Health, Housing, and Legal Services. 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.
SDOH Referral Pilot Program: CAMBA is partnering through a contract with New York Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH), to develop a pilot program focused on connecting NYPH patients to services that address a variety of social determinants of health (SDOH). The pilot program will be funded for at least one year and initially consist of a full-time Case Manager. Together, the SDOH Referral Team will receive referrals from NYPH’s emergency room, and eventually other units of the hospital. NYPH will refer “risking risk” patients, who have at least one social need and two emergency room visits in the past year. The SDOH Referral Pilot Program will prioritize needs related to food, transportation and housing, but other SDOH may be identified and addressed. CAMBA and NYPH will work closely to develop an efficient closed-loop referral workflow and reporting structure.
