Bronx Jewish Community Council, is a non-sectarian, community based, social service organization providing assistance to all low-income individuals living in the Bronx. We see and help over 10,000 individuals each year. BJCC specializes in addressing needs, particularly those of older adults who want to age in place rather than move to an institutionalized setting. Agency services range from intensive case management, mental health outreach, connection to all federal, state and city benefits and entitlements, referral to free legal services. There is also an emergency cash assistance program which can prevent evictions and utility turn-offs. BJCC’s Holland Avenue site is home to one of the largest food pantries in the Bronx, with 2,400 individuals frequenting the pantry each month.
