Executive Message

​​​​There are few challenges greater than providing individuals and families with the knowledge, tools and resources they need to achieve self-sufficiency and to contribute to the well-being of their communities. CAMBA provides diverse clients in Brooklyn and across New York City with programs that add value to their lives. All of our stakeholders – our clients, our Board, our staff and our volunteers – have benefited greatly from CAMBA’s good works.

CAMBA continues to place low-income adults in unsubsidized employment through economic development programs; to improve literacy through adult education programs; to help overage/under-credited students move toward graduation through youth development programs; to provide assistance to HIV-positive clients and their families through health services; to protect families from eviction through legal and non-legal advocacy programs; to assist clients with immigration counseling through legal services programs; and to offer a wide range of other programs that provide clients with opportunities to enhance their quality of life.

Since its inception in 2005, CAMBA Housing Ventures Inc. (CHV) has grown to become an award-winning model for affordable, supportive housing. CHV pairs excellent design and sustainable, energy-efficient buildings with CAMBA's outstanding social services to provide safe, healthy and life-changing homes for low-income and formerly homeless individuals. CHV is one of our flagship efforts to help multiply-challenged individuals improve their lives and to build stronger neighborhoods.

These programs and services are just part of the work we do every day and of our unending efforts to help 60,000 New Yorkers each year.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to enriching lives.

Joanne M. Oplustil
President and CEO
