Securing appropriate, affordable housing is a challenge for many New Yorkers. With a vacancy rate of only 3% in the rental housing market, suitable housing in New York City is at best a scarce commodity.

For low-income and disabled households, the search for housing presents almost insurmountable challenges that result in overcrowded households, record levels of homelessness, neighborhoods segregated by income, and growing numbers of tenants living in unsafe and unsanitary conditions because of an inability to afford anything better.

Since 1991, CAMBA has been addressing the City’s housing crisis by building a continuum of housing-related services. Today our programs include homelessness prevention, housing relocation, emergency and transitional housing, and permanent and supportive housing.

Through our affiliate CAMBA Housing Ventures (CHV), we are pursuing the goal of developing 1,000 units of permanent housing in Brooklyn by the year 2015. CHV works in partnership with prominent national organizations, local developers, community-based agencies, and City and State government to develop safe, high-quality affordable housing. CHV promotes stability for lower-income households and nurtures vital mixed-income neighborhoods with quality housing options for every household.
