Over the past quarter-century, CAMBA has created a comprehensive, multi-pronged approach to addressing New York City’s housing crisis. Our services and solutions include: 

  • ​Homeless Shelters: Our emergency shelters serve families and individuals, including those living with a serious mental illness or HIV/AIDS. We operate a drop-in center for homeless adults during the day and overnight beds in volunteer-run shelters at churches and synagogues. Learn more>>
  • ​Homelessness Prevention: CAMBA keeps people in their homes by providing benefit advocacy, case management, tenant mediation, budgeting and financial assistance, ren​tal arrears and legal services to stabilize individuals and families in crisis. Learn more>>
  • ​Housing for People Living with HIV/AIDS: We help individuals living with a serious mental illness, substance abuse disorder, and/or HIV/AIDS prepare to live independently by providing transitional housing. Learn more>>
  • ​Permanent Supportive Housing: CAMBA operates or supports permanent housing units to help individuals and families who are chronically homeless, living with HIV/AIDS or suffering from serious and persistent mental illness and/or chemical addictions, maintain their stable housing and independent lifestyles. This includes scattered site apartments and residential buildings developed by CAMBA Housing Ventures or partner developers. Learn more>>

​CAMBA Housing Ventures​, CAMBA’s development arm, was started in 2005 to develop permanent, sustainable, affordable housing for low-income and formerly homeless individuals and families. CAMBA provides a full range of supportive services in our housing developments to ensure that residents moving from homeless shelters are able to regain independent, successful lives. Learn more>>
