Jewish Child Care Association

Jewish Child Care Association is a comprehensive child and family services agency in the tri-state New York area.  We work with those who need us most, including children who have been abused or neglected, immigrant Jewish families and those building new lives. 

Most of our families comes to us because they struggle with poverty or family crises, and because they are working to create an independent future.  JCCA helps more than 16,000 children and families every year and is consistently rated at the highest levels for the quality of our programs.  In all our work, we are motivated by the value within Jewish tradition that calls upon all of us to repair the world, and by our belief that every child deserves to grow up hopeful.
