Brooklyn Community Services (BCS) was founded in 1866 and continues to help children and youth reach their full potential, strengthen families, and foster self-sufficiency in adults. Brooklyn Community Services is one of the oldest, not-for-profit, non-sectarian social service providers in New York City and one of the largest in Brooklyn.
Over the years, BCS has strengthened countless families at risk of separation; supported and stabilized people with psychiatric illnesses; helped adults with disabilities participate fully in the community; enabled people to move from welfare to work; and offered guidance, education and support to children and young adults. With programs in 17 Brooklyn locations, Brooklyn Community Services serves more than 13,000 people each year.
