CAMBA, Inc. is a non-profit agency founded in 1977 for the purpose of “connect[ing] people with opportunities to enhance their quality of life.” It manages over 150 integrated services and programs, including education and youth development initiatives.
Violence Out Brownsvile is a newly formed Cure Violence affiliate in New York City. The program is scheduled to be operational in 2015. As a newly inaugurated site, however, the program is still in the process of developing a repertoire of community services, events and programs.
Community engagement is a key part of the Cure Violence Model and Violence Out is committed to incorporating neighborhood outreach into its activities. A range of services will be offered through the larger organization, such as economic assistance, educational supports and access to youth development programs, assistance for HIV/AIDS patients, and legal services.
