Who We Are: CAMBA is a community of staff, volunteers, clients, donors, neighbors and partners who work together to build an inclusive New York City, where all children and adults have access to the resources and supports they need to thrive. We take a comprehensive approach by offering more than 160 integrated programs in: Education & Youth Development, Family Support, Job Training & Employment Support Services, Health, Housing, and Legal Services. We reach more than 65,000 individuals and families each year at our 90 locations, including 20,000 youth. CAMBA serves a diverse cross section of New Yorkers from new mothers in Brownsville to job seekers in the Rockaways. More than half of our clients are immigrants and refugees from around the globe. Over 85% of our families are in living in poverty, reflecting the challenges faced by nearly 1.7 million New Yorkers today.
The Supportive Counseling Family Stabilization Program (SCG) provides supportive, clinical, and low-threshold case management services to 100 persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and their families. The primary goal is to provide support, stability, and reduce stressors, to ensure that our clients have access to and successfully maintain their connection to primary health care. The program's core services include: 1.) weekly support groups to assist clients with developing ways of coping, reducing stress, building social and peer support, and relationship skills; 2.) individual supportive counseling on topics such as; HIV disclosure to partners and family members, harm reduction skills building, and treatment adherence; 3) family counseling on topics that include improving communication, developing and strengthening relationships, and increasing safer sex practices; and 4) low-threshold case management services to assist clients in reducing barriers to care, to coordinate care with other providers, and to access support services for immigrant clients. The main goal of SCF is to ensure that clients access and maintain connection with HIV primary care and necessary supportive services. To ensure that our clients reach their service plan goals our Counselors and Client Advocate/Peer Educator are available to accompany clients to their primary care and other service appointments. Interpretation services are provided on an as-needed basis.
