Group Volunteering in the Respite Bed Program


Serving with CAMBA gives our volunteers real insight into the many challenges that people who are homeless face. It is rare to find an agency so dedicated both to its clients and to its volunteers. -Matt Brooks, Fellow, Youth Service Opportunities Project
Whether we are making and serving a meal or cleaning and folding linens, our groups truly appreciate the opportunity to be involved in part of the greater work CAMBA is doing. -Tracee Henneke, New York City Director, Center for Student Missions
