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 US in 2011 from Uzbekistan and started ESL classes at SJCC in 2012. I first became a home attendant and because of the skills I learned at SJCC I was able to help my clients navigate situations in English. I was then able to take a course to become a hair dresser. I now work at a salon in Manhattan. This is all because of the ESL classes I was able to take at SJCC.
