CAMBA’s Family & Community Support programs help people create and apply solutions to problems that affect their self-sufficiency, health, and success. Our clients struggle to pay rent and other bills, maintain employment, raise children, and cope with emotional and mental health problems. Community and personal violence threaten their safety and security. CAMBA provides helpful, effective programs and delivers them with compassion and hope.

We offer family violence prevention and intervention programs, including a 24/7 victims’ hotline and crisis counseling, along with parenting, pregnancy, and newborn support.

  • Family support workers made 2,389 home visits in 2018 as part of the Healthy Families program.
  • We served 194 families in our Healthy Families Home Visiting Program. 98% of children met developmental milestones on time; by age one, 93% had immunizations; by 15 months, 92% had five well-baby visits; by age two, 90% of children’s parents were working, in job training, or enrolled in school
  • 95% of families in  foster care prevention programs were not reported to the State Central Registry (SCR) for suspected abuse or neglect
  • We counseled 751 crime victims through our Victim Assistance Program

Strong families build strong communities, breaking the cycles of abuse and poor health that hold people back from achieving their goals. CAMBA helps families and community overcome challenges and thrive.
