Program Summary: CAMBA’s iCARE Program stands for “Initiating Change Around Reproductive Education” and is designed to help all women lead healthy lifestyles, thus reducing instances of unplanned pregnancies, pre-term and low-weight births, and high maternal and infant mortality rates. We host educational workshops on key topics related to women’s (and men’s) health, and help clients obtain health insurance, family planning services, quality health care, and other social services depending on their current needs, available resources, and goals for the future — whether that includes having children or not. We provide brief case management and refer clients to evidence-based programs.
CAMBA’s iCARE Program also works with public health agencies, service providers, and policy makers across Brooklyn to address overall racial, ethnic and economic disparities in women’s health care. In doing so, we aim to improve quality of care in high need and high poverty neighborhoods, making it easier for all women to access the services they need to lead healthy lives.
Who Can Apply? Any women of childbearing age (ages 12-44) whether you have children or not, including teenagers, pregnant women and mothers living in the following Brooklyn zip codes: 11226, 11203, 11212 and 11233. This program is funded by the NYS Department of Health.
