The RBSCC DFTA Case Management Department provides homebound seniors residing in Community Boards # 1, 3, 4 in Brooklyn with comprehensive strength-based intakes and in-home assessments. The Case Management Department also provides our homebound Seniors with our Friendly Visiting Program, which provides companionship to our homebound seniors. All services approved by our department are funded by the New York City Department for the Aging.
The Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council was founded in 1973 as a senior service provider in the Ridgewood and Bushwick communities. At the heart of its mission was a deep commitment to empowering individuals and supporting families through the creation and facilitation of a thriving and healthy environment where growth and prosperity are possible. Since its founding, RBSCC has grown tremendously and its scope of services has extended far beyond that of its early years. Today it provides a vast array of social services to residents of all ages within the Bushwick, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, East New York, Ridgewood, Glendale, and surrounding Brooklyn and Queens communities. Serving thousands each year, the RBSCC has assisted countless community residents since 1973.
