Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island (JCCGCI) is a community-based organization that provides services well beyond the boundaries of Coney Island. We provide a wide range of social services to low-income and elderly individuals and families. While we have a focus on southern Brooklyn, many of our programs also serve other Brooklyn neighborhoods, parts of Queens and Manhattan. We have a positive impact on communities throughout the city through our capacity-building services to other non-profit organizations.

We were founded in 1973 as a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life for the frail elderly, the vocationally disadvantaged, underprivileged immigrants and educationally at-risk youth. We later saw the opportunity to have a broader impact by strengthening the abilities of other community-based non-profits, and so added capacity-building technical assistance for those organizations.
