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.
This position is part-time on the weekends 1-9 PM.
CAMBA's Respite Bed Program is a network of over 35 churches and synagogues who donate their time and space to serve homeless clients of The Gathering Place, CAMBA's Drop-In Center. Each site provides a safe bed and a warm dinner to between 6 and 20 guests nightly. This allows the guests to spend their days focused on overcoming homelessness, rather than on finding a place to sleep. Every site is run differently, but they have many things in common. All engage committed and compassionate volunteers; all provide a safe and friendly place for people in need; all serve nutritious and hot dinners; and all are secular despite being run out of houses of worship. CAMBA's Respite Bed Program staff work to ensure that this dedicated network has all the resources and support necessary to provide the nightly services. The staff team recruits, trains, places, schedules and supports volunteers; ensures that sites have necessary physical equipment and supplies (beds and linen); and coordinates daily with the drop-in center about client issues including transportation, screening, orientation and appropriate behavior.
