Mission Statement

Met Council is one of New York's largest human services agencies, providing critical services to more than 100,000 New Yorkers in need. For 40 years, Met Council has been a defender and advocate for New Yorkers in need, and has raised awareness around the growing problem of Jewish poverty. With services ranging from domestic violence counseling to kosher food pantries and career training, Met Council helps individuals find lasting solutions to complex problems.


Met Council serves all New Yorkers in need regardless of race, ethnicity, or background. We were originally founded in 1972, to advocate for the Jewish poor, an overlooked population, and many of our affiliated Jewish Community Councils are located in communities with large Jewish populations. Today, we coordinate a network of 25 JCC's throughout the five boroughs of New York, and provide a broad array of programs designed to meet the needs of the poor, working-poor, elderly and immigrant residents of our communities.
