CAMBA Gardens I & II
The thought of using surplus property on hospital campuses was put forth as a policy concept by CSH in a white paper written in 2005. CSH is proud to have been a part of both CAMBA Gardens I & II, a national model of supportive housing, and now home for hundreds of New York’s most vulnerable individuals and families.
