FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES


CAMBA’s Family Support programs are designed to leverage each family’s strengths to develop solutions to real problems that create barriers to their self-sufficiency. Families struggle to pay rent and other bills, maintain employment, raise children and cope with often severe emotional and mental health problems. Our services include family violence intervention, foster care prevention, maternal and infant health intervention, nutritional services and refugee resettlement.

CAMBA works in partnership with health care providers, and faith-based and other community based organizations and institutions to reduce the infant mortality rate. Our services to pregnant and newly parenting families in central Brooklyn have consistently outperformed state-wide standards.

We provide access to victims of violent crimes, domestic violence, sexual assault and/or those affected by violence to a broad range of violence intervention, prevention and education services where they will demonstrate the ability to recognize, diffuse, and/or avoid violent situations. Similarly, CAMBA works with NYC host schools offering crisis-counseling services, workshops and peer leadership opportunities to improve young people’s awareness of behaviors that trigger abusive relationships. Information is also disseminated to teachers, parents, and the community at large to help identify and respond to teenage abuse.

For over ten years we have provided effective services to more than 2000 families. CAMBA’s programs are outcome-focused, ensuring that our clients gain the listening, communication and parenting skills they need to function as healthy families and parents.
