Our friends at CAMBA Housing Ventures are featured in this report by the Enterprise Community Loan Fund.

The NY State Homeless and the NY State Developmentally Disabled (DD) populations are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT funding streams, but this is a good reference guide for presenting the economics of Supportive Housing, especially in Upstate and Rural Communities in New York. 

The DD population has an opportunity to be an economic force in communities where it is needed. 

The Enterprise Community Loan Fund highlighted CAMBA Gardens Phase I in its new report on the the social return on investment for affordable, supportive housing. The report details many of the extraordinary benefits of providing permanent housing with on-site social services for formerly homeless individuals.

For examble, CAMBA Gardens I saves the public up to $2.3 million every year by reducing the high-cost services too often used by homeless New Yorkers, such as health care and shelters. Developed by CAMBA Housing Ventures with services provided by CAMBA, CAMBA Gardens I is home to 146 formerly homeless adults and families and 63 low-income working families.
