Case Manager II, CAMBA's Healthy Families

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. 

CAMBA's Healthy Families Program offers voluntary home visiting services to pregnant or newly parenting families living in zip code 11226 (Flatbush) and 11233 (Bedford-Stuyvesant/Ocean Hill) Brooklyn communities. The program helps parents with the changes that come along with pregnancy and the birth of a child. HFP also helps to identify and address financial or emotion stress, as well as other family risk factors that may exist during pregnancy and at the time of birth. Program services are free and focus on parent/child interaction, effective parent/child bonding, and overall family support. These services may be utilized on a short or long term basis, and are available up to the child's fifth birthday.
