Since Hurricane Sandy hit the shores of New York, the Marks JCH has mobilized to help meet the needs of our community in this time of crisis. Our staff are available onsite at the J to help navigating the maze of benefits available to those in need. We are providing crisis counseling, entitlement assistance, translation services, advocacy, job placement, case management, senior center lunch program, referrals to many onsite services at the J, including help for people struggling with domestic violence and elder abuse, reassurance calls and visits to our older adults, including many Holocaust survivors, emergency childcare and much, much more. We continue to work in partnership with other community agencies to send volunteers to local shelters and to the areas hardest hit by Sandy, including Brighton Beach, Coney Island and the Rockaways.
If you are in need of help, please call us at: 718-943-6392 or
