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, rental 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>>
