Census Manager, Census Complete Count Fund

​CAMBA's mission is to offer holistic social services to New York City's most vulnerable residents, connecting them to opportunities that will enhance their quality of life. Starting as a small kitchen-table operation over 40 years ago, we now operate in all five boroughs and serve over 65,000 individuals and families a year. We have more than 160 programs in an integrated set of six program areas: Economic Development, Education and Youth Development, Family Support, Health, Housing, and Legal Services. This equips us to respond to the full range of clients' needs and barriers, helping them overcome complex adversities— from homelessness to domestic violence— and build a better life. We give those recovering from substance abuse a second chance, find safe homes for refugees, and reconnect youth who have left school. We work to inspire resilience and self-sufficiency through job training, financial counseling, and educational programs for all ages. Our programs build inclusive communities where New Yorkers have the supports necessary to reach their full potential. With 95 locations across New York City, CAMBA develops deep ties to the neighborhoods in which we operate.

About the Census Complete Count Fund

The United States Constitution requires a population count—or census—every 10 years. The census determines every state's proportional representation in Congress as well as its share of federal funds for health care, education, housing, economic development, social services, roads, transportation, and more. In light of the resources that are at risk and the fact that the State of New York could lose up to two congressional seats in the case of a 2020 census undercount, it is critically important that all New Yorkers, especially those from historically undercounted communities, are counted.

To support a fair and complete count, CAMBA is working in partnership with the City University of New York (CUNY), Mayor de Blasio's NYC Census 2020 office, and the New York City Council to mobilize New Yorkers to self-respond to the 2020 census. CAMBA's mission is to maximize the count.

CAMBA is seeking an exceptionally qualified candidate for the role of Census Manager. In collaboration with NYC Census 2020, the Census Manager will oversee CAMBA's census engagement and outreach plan to educate community members about the significance of the census and the importance of census self-response; identify and dismantle barriers to census participation; and connect New Yorkers to the tools and resources they need to participate in the 2020 census.
