We are JCCA

Our 37 programs include foster care, residential treatment facilities, mental health services, case management, education programs and special services for children who have been the victims of sexual abuse. We serve New York’s neediest and most vulnerable children and families to ensure that their safety, permanency and well-being leads to a life of stability and promise.

JCCA’s Commitment to Equity and Anti-Racism

JCCA vehemently condemns the brutal repression of those fighting for systemic change and for the rights of Black and Brown people to live and breathe. JCCA denounces the over-policing of communities of color that has resulted in demoralizing, dehumanizing damage that is inextricably intertwined with the challenges our clients face.
