Today, The Jewish Board is one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive mental health and social service agencies, providing support and care for individuals and families at every stage of life and of all faiths, races and cultures.

The Jewish Board promotes recovery, resilience and self-sufficiency to over 40,000 New Yorkers annually at over 75 locations throughout the five boroughs and at a 125 acre campus in Westchester. Our mission to provide health and human services to all New Yorkers is built upon the professionalism and compassion of over 3,000 employees, including professional social workers, family therapists, licensed psychologists, and psychiatrists, and a corps of 1,000 dedicated volunteers. Together, we build hope for all New Yorkers.
