Brand New in 2016: A new JCCA look, name and tagline
We’ve officially changed our name to JCCA and have a new look, a new logo and a new tagline: Repair the world, child by child.
That is what we believe and what we strive to do every day. The phrase refers to the Jewish mandate of tikkun olam — the responsibility of every person to make the world a better place. And it underscores our commitment to help each child build on his or her unique strengths to become healthy and productive adults.
IN THE NEWS: Mayor Bill de Blasio Appoints JCCA CEO to Newly Formed Advisory Board
We are pleased to
announce that JCCA CEO Ronald E. Richter
has been appointed by Mayor Bill de Blasio to the newly formed NYC Children’s
Cabinet Advisory Board. The Board will support children’s health and well-being and will allow city agencies to leverage the
expertise, relationships and resources of non-government experts. Members of
the Board include appointees from all five boroughs in academia, faith, media,
business, technology, the nonprofit sector and the judiciary.
“I created the NYC Children’s Cabinet to enhance
the ways in which city agencies promote and protect our children’s well-being.
This was always an all-hands-on-deck approach and I commend our newest partners
in this endeavor for accepting this most special charge,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
JCCA provides comprehensive care to thousands of children, young people and families who come from New York’s many diverse communities. Since 1822, we have embraced those who need us most — abused, neglected and traumatized young people who are struggling with poverty, developmental disabilities and complex mental illness. We also work with disadvantaged Jewish immigrants and with Jewish children and their families in support of Jewish continuity. Our programs include foster and residential care, educational assistance and remediation, case management for young people with mental health challenges and services to families to prevent child abuse and maltreatment. JCCA offers safety, stability and lifesaving support to help our clients transform their lives. In everything we do, we are guided by the Jewish mandate of tikkun olam — the responsibility of every person to make the world a better place.
JCCA is authorized by the Council on Accreditation and recognized as a provider that continues to successfully
implement high performance standards and is delivering the highest
quality services to all of its stakeholders.
