Mission and History
The mission of Shorefront JCC is to improve the quality of life of low-income seniors and families residing in South Brooklyn by offering a wide-range of social services, support, and connections to vital resources that enable families and seniors to continue living comfortably and safely in their homes and communities.
I came to the United States from the Soviet Union looking for a better life for my family. I had limited opportunities because of my lack of English and no financial resources. I came to SJCC and attended free ESL classes. I then was able to enroll in their job training program to become a Dental office receptionist. I am not employed and grateful to the support SJCC provided me.
