Supporting New Yorkers During COVID-19

The safety of our clients and staff during the COVID-19 crisis is our top priority.

We are closely monitoring the situation as it develops, and are taking action based on guidance from the CDC, New York State Office of Mental Health, and New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

As we provide essential services to the community, all of our offices, clinics, and residences remain open.

We need your help to support other New Yorkers during this uniquely challenging time. Here are several ways that you can help:

Join HelpCorps

The Jewish Board HelpCorps is a team of paid, temporary full-time and part-time staff to help us serve New York’s most vulnerable during this time of crisis. No specialized skills or training are required to apply — only a passion for helping others. Learn more.

Volunteer Remotely

During this time of crisis, there are many ways that we can help the people we serve – children in the foster care system, children and adults with mental illness, and people of all ages with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Learn more.

Resources for Coping with COVID-19

No matter our circumstances, COVID-19 has introduced uncertainty into our lives. To help address these unprecedented challenges from a mental health perspective, The Jewish Board is offering a virtual Community Connections series – free, online sessions where anyone can hear from our staff experts and have an opportunity to ask questions before, during, and after the session. Learn more.

Support our COVID-19 Relief Fund

Help us safeguard New York City’s safety net as we continue to provide services to our most vulnerable populations in a time of crisis. Proceeds will go towards providing relief for programs who are struggling in the wake of COVID-19. You can also help spread the word about our fundraiser by creating your own fundraising page or team.
