Full Time

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.

CAMBA’s LGBTQ+ Education and Acceptance Project (LEAP) consists of several components to promote family and community acceptance of LGBTQ+ youth in order to improve health and well-being among this population. Program components include: educational workshops; support groups, counseling, and conflict mediation for families of LGBTQ+ youth; social marketing campaigns; the development and dissemination of role model stories and resource kits; the development and screening of short films created by LGBTQ+ youth; and community outreach. Our program works with Black and Latin parents and families of LGBTQ+ youth, as well as LGBTQ+ youth up to the age of 21 in Brooklyn and Queens.
