Met Council is the umbrella organization for 19 local Jewish Community Councils throughout New York City. These agencies are located in neighborhoods with high populations of Jewish need and alert us to trends and needs for services in these communities.

The JCCs serve as the front-line contact for people who are vulnerable, allowing individuals and families to access both JCC and Met Council’s breadth of services in the convenience and safety of their own neighborhoods.

JCCs range in size and infrastructure, but most provide on-site food distribution, benefits enrollment and crisis intervention. JCCs rely on Met Council for funding and infrastructure, and frequently refer clients to Met Council for more extensive services.
