The struggle to stay in a home or find affordable housing deeply affects a person’s ability to find a job, attend school, maintain good health, and raise children.
CAMBA focuses on several housing challenges in NYC, starting with a highly effective homelessness prevention program including tenant support services, an eviction prevention unit, and a mobile office that identifies buildings and neighborhoods at high risk of homelessness. We provide case management, job training and job placement, informal and formal mediation, budget counseling and advocacy, including referrals to Public Assistance, legal and other supportive services to help people remain housed and stable, without entering the shelter system.
CAMBA provides safe housing for people already in transition including emergency and shelter housing. For those living with HIV/AIDS, mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders, CAMBA helps with transitional housing and supportive services in preparation for independent living.
CAMBA has also taken on the challenge of safe, affordable housing in NYC with developments built by our nonprofit affiliate CAMBA Housing Ventures (CHV). CHV develops sustainable, award-winning buildings and apartments for eligible individuals and families. We also provide supportive services at affordable housing residences owned and managed by partnering organizations.
The combination of CAMBA’s life-changing support services for residents and CHV’s affordable housing developments equals housing stability, safety, and opportunities to build stronger and brighter futures.
