Due to severe flash flood warnings in the New York area, all JCCA city locations will be closed on Tuesday, October 26, 2021. Staff based out of these offices will perform their usual work remotely. The Westchester campus will remain open and will operate under normal emergency weather protocols. Please stay safe—and dry!

We are JCCA

We help abused, neglected and traumatized children heal physically and emotionally through compassionate, quality care. 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.
