Building a better Brooklyn since 1866.
We provide Brooklynites with innovative and effective assistance by evaluating the results of our work, continuously improving the quality of our services, and working with our consumers, partners and supporters to identify and meet our community's needs.
Our organization reflects and celebrates the diversity of the borough we serve. By bringing together and embracing Brooklyn's diverse people, cultures, and communities, we achieve results that none of us could achieve alone.
We hold ourselves to the highest professional and ethical standards. We take ownership of our mistakes and study them in order to improve. We use our resources wisely and are transparent in our relationships with our supporters and the public.
Compassion and a belief in the strength of the human spirit are at the core of our work. We believe that each human being has the right to live a life of dignity, deserves help no matter where they are in life, and has a contribution to make to our community.
