Description

JBFCS, one of the nation's premier mental health and social service agencies, offers a diverse network of more than 175 community-based programs, residential facilities and day-treatment centers. These programs serve more than 55,000 people of all religious, ethnic and economic backgrounds each year at sites throughout New York City, Long Island and Westchester.

Our work is built upon the professionalism and compassionof 2,200 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 800 dedicated volunteers work with our staff to help ease the burdens that strain and disrupt the lives of our clients.

Service defines us best. Every night of the year, more than 1,000 men, women and children sleep in residences under our care. Every week of the year, more than 2,500 people receive counseling from professionals on our staff. JBFCS, a beneficiary of the UJA-Federation of New York, is a place of clinical excellence and compassionate care: For the mother and her children seeking refuge from domestic violence. For the family coping with caring for a developmentally disabled child. For the parent facing depression and despair following job loss. For the couple struggling to maintain a loving relationship. For the toddler showing early signs of developmental delays. For the child bearing the trauma of abuse and neglect. For the teen grappling with the challenges of mental illness and becoming a productive young adult. For the older adult fighting depression and anxiety related to age and loss.

Whatever the stage of life, whatever the overwhelming stress may be, JBFCS represents this city's most experienced first line of response.
