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.
Since 1991, CAMBA has been addressing the City’s housing crisis and today this portfolio includes permanent affordable and supportive housing, homelessness prevention, housing relocation, emergency and transitional housing. In response to a pressing need for permanent, stable and affordable housing for New York City residents, CAMBA created an affiliated non-profit affordable housing development corporation in 2005 called CAMBA Housing Ventures, Inc. (CHV). CHV envisions diverse, thriving communities where affordable housing plays a transformative role in the success of low-income individuals and families. CHV’s mission is to elevate the definition of affordable and supportive housing by creating and preserving sustainable, high-quality, and energy-efficient developments that provide residents with a healthy, stabilizing, and beautiful home. We are committed to creating an equitable and inclusive New York City by empowering communities with resources and opportunities to flourish. CHV’s portfolio of completed or in progress developments are located throughout New York City, including work-out acquisition, new construction, rehabilitation and preservation projects.
