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.

CAMBA's Workforce Development Program provides skills training, job readiness, and placement services to qualified clients. By providing occupational training in the following areas: Security, Human Services, and Customer Service, CAMBA seeks to assist individuals in making a transition to gainful employment. We serve refugees, political asylees, and other immigrant statuses. The majority of the population served has limited English skills and is low-income. This program is performance-based, and success is measured by meeting placement and retention goals.
