The Jewish Board

The Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services has been a trailblazer in treating social problems for more than 110 years. Today, The Jewish Board is the largest human services agency in New York City, serving over 43,000 New Yorkers annually from all religious, ethnic, and economic backgrounds through a comprehensive range of 175 community-based programs, residential facilities, and day-treatment centers.

Our work is built upon the professionalism of 3,300 employees, including professional social workers, licensed psychologists, and psychiatrists, as well as a cadre of clinical support personnel in continuing day treatment and residential treatment centers. A corps of 2,000 dedicated volunteers work with our staff to help ease the burdens that strain and disrupt lives.

Ensuring the continuing quality of agency programs, The Jewish Board offers an extensive in-service training program through the Martha K. Selig Educational Institute. Internship programs in social work and psychology are available to students of schools of social work in New York City and graduate psychology programs throughout the nation.

Support for services is provided by individual contributions, bequests, program fees, foundations and government grants. The Jewish Board is a beneficiary agency of UJA-Federation of New York and a member of the Association of Jewish Family and Children’s Agencies.

For 140 years, The Jewish Board has been helping New Yorkers realize their potential and live as independently as possible.
