SERVICES

Our services include family violence intervention, foster care prevention, maternal and infant health intervention, nutritional services and refugee resettlement.

CAMBA works in partnership with health care providers, and faith-based and other community based organizations and institutions to reduce the infant mortality rate. Our services to pregnant and newly parenting families in central Brooklyn have consistently outperformed state-wide standards.

Within our Family Support program area, CAMBA provides home visiting to pregnant women and new mothers with children ages 0-3 years who face multiple barriers to raising children in a safe and healthy environment, including limited access to quality health care, jobs, education, and social support needed to raise a family.

Our current suite of home visiting programs collectively reach 500 families each year and focuses on prevention of abuse and neglect, early identification of developmental delays and connections to primary health care and others critical resources to support children’s development.
