JCCA also has a special commitment to strengthening Jewish children and their families, especially those establishing new lives in America. In all our programs we are motivated by tikkun olam, the Jewish mandate to repair the world, and by our belief that every child deserves to grow up hopeful.

JCCA traces its roots back to 1822 when the first of our predecessor agencies was founded to care for poor Jewish orphans. JCCA today is the successor agency to over twenty other New-York based child care organizations. As the needs of the community have changed, JCCA's continuum of services has evolved, so that today JCCA offers comprehensive family programs that are responsive to the cultural, racial, and linguistic diversity of the families of New York. JCCA serves more than 12,000 children and families every year. We provide a full continuum of care that spans early childhood initiatives, outpatient mental health and preventive services, adoption counseling, foster care, and residential treatment. JCCA also has a special commitment to strengthening Jewish children and their families--especially those establishing new lives in America. JCCA is consistently rated by independent evaluations at the highest levels for the quality of our programs. Our foster boarding home program is the only one in the city to be ranked by the Administration of Children's Services in the excellent category for the past six years.
