Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island is a private not-for-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. We were founded in 1973 to provide a wide-spectrum of social services to the low-income residents of southern Brooklyn (regardless of race and religion), and to foster neighborhood stabilization. Since then, Jewish Community Center of Greater Coney Island’s mission has grown to improve the quality of life of vulnerable people of all backgrounds, stabilize neighborhoods in our south Brooklyn community and throughout the city and to empower low-income New Yorkers to maximize their potentials.
We achieve our mission by developing and continually improving exemplary citywide and locally-focused services that are strengthen-based, respectful of participants’ cultures and address the city’s need for: comprehensive after-school programs; supportive services to frail elders; educational and workforce development programs for disengaged youth, poor immigrants and under-employed adults; improved housing; evidence-based efforts to reduce gun violence; and technical assistance to strengthen the capacity of other nonprofit agencies to achieve their mission.
