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 10,000 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.

SafeCare Family Services (SFS): SafeCare Family Services is an evidence-based, in-home, parenting skills training curriculum for parents who are at risk of, or who have been reported for, child maltreatment. The program is broken down into 3 curriculum modules. The Parent-Child/Parent-Infant Interactions Module targets risk factors associated with neglect and physical abuse. The Health Module targets risk factors for medical neglect. The Home Safety Module targets risk factors for environmental neglect and unintentional injury. The majority of the curriculum is conducted through home visits to eligible families. SafeCare Family Services takes a structured problem-solving approach and serves clients with at least one child in the home between the ages of 0-5, who can benefit from enhanced parenting skills, have an open case of neglect or a history of neglect, lack resources or social support, are in the Independent Living Program, are participating in a substance abuse treatment program, are receiving mental health care services and/or have demonstrated a lack of supervision and safety.
