CAMBA Respite Bed Program Dinner

Come volunteer with CAMBA’s Respite Bed Program, an opportunity that houses a select group of people who are homeless at various churches and synagogues. As a volunteer, you’ll be serving at these churches and synagogues, making a real impact in the lives of these individuals by cooking dinner, sharing a meal, and/or staying overnight in a smaller, more intimate setting with CAMBA’s clients. 




One thing that may be lacking in traditional homeless shelters is intimate and family-atmosphere meals. In the Respite Bed Program, we create a space for both volunteers and guests to have a home cooked meal as well as a clean and secure environment. 




This volunteer opportunity can be really fun, flexible, and dynamic! Whether you have a passion for cooking, want to cook and prepare a meal with a few friends, are interested in sharing a meal with a diverse group of people experiencing poverty, or want to support these CAMBA clients by staying overnight, you can participate in one or all of those opportunities. 




Schedule for volunteers:


5:00-7:45pm volunteers will be cooking, baking and setting up for dinner.


7:45-9:00pm volunteers will engage in conversations during dinner, and then help clean up.


CAMBA is looking for volunteers to stay overnight at the shelter from 9:00pm-5:30am. A training will be included.


Volunteers will start cooking around 5:00pm, set up will start at 6:45pm, and dinner will begin around 8:00pm. 




This will be a reoccurring event, happening the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month. If you’re interested but want more information about this volunteer opportunity, I’d be more than happy to talk on the phone or meet up in person. 




CAMBA takes a comprehensive approach to help individuals, families and communities thrive, offering integrated programs in Economic Development, Education & Youth Development, Family Support, Health, Housing, and Legal Services. Our programs build inclusive communities where New Yorkers have the support they need to reach their full potential. You can also find out more information about CAMBA’s Respite Bed Program here!

Convivio: Jews, Hispanics & the Comics

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage month with a special art gallery opening and musical Havdallah! 


Convivio (Spanish for living together peacefully)  documents the ways in which Jews and Hispanics came to define the American comic book industry. Comics are a unique artistic medium, a paradigm of American assimilationist values and mainstream culture. Paradoxically, they demonstrate unique aspects of identity, narrative, ethnicity, religion, race and the self from its very inception. 


Curated by Joel Silverstein, Ray Felix, Goldie Gross, and Julian Voloj. Organized by Be’chol Lashon, Jewish Art Salon, Bronx Heroes Comics Con & Repair the World / Supported by UJA Federation New York.

The Youth Farm grows organic food and flowers on one acre for the community and beyond, and offers hands-on farm training and leadership opportunities for youth and adults. It is located on the lawn of the Wingate Campus, and is partnered with the High School for Public Service. The Youth Farm is dedicated to stewarding their soil, ensuring that it will be healthy for many growing seasons to come.

CAMBA Volunteer Recognition Event

Camba’s Respite Bed Program houses a select group of people who are homeless at various churches and synagogues. Part of what makes the program so successful and impactful are the volunteers and local churches/synagogues that generously devote their time and spaces to New York City’s homeless population. 




Once a year, the CAMBA staff invites the volunteers to a special event where we honor and recognize all that our wonderful volunteers do. On Wednesday, October 24th, 2018, we will serve dinner and present awards to all of our volunteers that help our program run year round. We are all part of a community of people who are devoted to ending homelessness and this event is a great opportunity to mingle with others that share that devotion. 




We especially need the help of volunteers to make this event special and ensure it runs smoothly! Volunteer tasks include greeters, help with the registration process, setting-up and decorating the tables and event space, serving dinner, and clean-up. If you can stay for a portion of time or for the whole event, it will be a great help! We appreciate YOU!




Schedule for volunteers:
