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 Initiating Change Around Reproductive Empowerment (iCARE):  Through a grant from the New York State Department of Health (MICHC), iCARE seeks improve maternal and infant health outcomes for low-income women and their families and reduce disparities in those outcomes, proving support and impacting service systems in the 11203, 11226, 11233 and 11212 communities. iCare community health workers (CHW) assist women and their families to effectively access continuous and coordinated healthcare and other services, including home visiting. CHWs provide outreach, information, assistance with access to services, advocacy, and enhanced social support.
