Homelessness, even for a short time, has a devastating long-term impact on children and adults who can no longer afford to live in their apartments, or are evicted for numerous other reasons. In 2018 CAMBA prevented more than 4,400 individuals and families from becoming homeless through our mobile YOU CAN VAN and the HomeBase program, Eviction Prevention Unit and Tenant Support Services.
Services include emergency food and utilities, job training and job placement, informal and formal mediation, budget counseling and advocacy, including referrals to Public Assistance, legal and other supportive services so clients remain housed and stable, avoiding the shelter system.
Our goal is to expand this program and prevent 15,000 households from becoming homeless by 2020.
CAMBA can help keep you in your home. We can mediate disputes with your landlord or advocate for benefits you may be owed as a tenant. We offer budgeting and emergency or short-term financial assistance. CAMBA can also refer you to support programs, like public assistance, or provide preventative health care and job training services to ensure your housing stability.
