FOX 5 NY: Second Chances at Brooklyn Democracy Academy 

Forty-nine students recently graduated from JCCA's Brooklyn Democracy Academy – a transfer high school in partnership with the New York City Department of Education. Students come to BDA having dropped out of or failed in other high schools. BDA offers them a second chance, and most of them succeed. This year, most of the graduates are going to college and the rest have jobs. They are on their way! According to Salutatorian Casey Smalls, “We are leaders and we will set a path for our generation.”

JCCA’S PROGRAMS FOR SEXUALLY ABUSED AND EXPLOITED CHILDREN

Since 1822, JCCA has been serving vulnerable, at-risk children and families who have been neglected or abused, immigrant families and people building new lives. Two JCCA programs are addressing the needs of sexually abused and exploited children: Gateways and the new Center for Healing.

 

CEO PERSPECTIVE: A GENTLE GIANT OF A MAN 

JCCA CEO Ronald Richter recounts a heartwarming story about a little boy in JCCA's Pleasantville START program, a short-term residential program for youth with behavioral and mental health problems in Westchester, NY.

"I often visit the boys and girls on our Campus. During the winter, I spent some time at the Short-Term Assessment and Rapid Treatment program (START) for young children who need intensive, special intervention to get stabilized and return to their families. I happened to see this young boy who was having difficulty eating and the gentle giant of a JCCA counselor who was patiently helping him.

I am pleased to report that several months later, the little boy is doing very well. I was so delighted to see him recently -- it was at a ceremony where he won an award for being the most improved student!"

JCCA provides comprehensive care to thousands of children, young people and families who come from New York’s 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.  

  1. Approximately 5 children die every day because of child abuse.
