Project Manager, CAMBA Housing Ventures, Inc.

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. 
 
Since 1991, CAMBA has been addressing the City's housing crisis and today this portfolio includes permanent affordable and supportive housing, homelessness prevention, housing relocation, emergency and transitional housing.  In response to a pressing need for permanent, stable and affordable housing for New York City residents, CAMBA created an affiliated non-profit affordable housing development corporation in 2005 called CAMBA Housing Ventures, Inc. CAMBA Housing Ventures (CHV) envisions vital neighborhoods where affordable housing plays a critical role in the long-term economic and social success of lower-income individuals and families. CHV's mission is to develop sustainable and energy efficient buildings that provide safe and affordable housing for low-income and formerly homeless families and individuals.  CHV's portfolio of award winning completed or in progress developments are located throughout New York City, including work-out acquisition, new construction, rehabilitation and preservation projects.
 
CAMBA Housing Ventures set a goal in 2005 to have in the pipeline and/or partner on to create 1,000 units of affordable housing by 2015 and doubled this goal through 2015 (2,062 units, over $628 million in public/private investment, over 2 million square feet, housing nearly 4,300 individuals) in three of the five boroughs. CHV's goal is to create or preserve 2,500 units by 2020, creating not only housing but a home for approximately 10,000 individuals.
