About Us

The Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizen Council (RBSCC) is one of New York’s largest non-profit social service organizations. For more than 30 years, RBSCC has provided critical care and services for our community. We have performed our mission with dedication and professionalism, as attested to by our success in open competition for service contracts and the consistent high ratings we receive from the agencies that oversee our work.

In 2009, RBSCC established the Community Empowerment Center to address the long standing social issues of homelessness and unemployment through innovative programs.  Our primary services now include homeless prevention, re-housing from shelter, legal services, veteran’s services, adult education, and job training and placement.  We also offer ongoing tenants’ rights and financial literacy trainings for community residents.

Please review our programs and the amazing stories of our participants.  We hope that you will contact our offices to learn more about our services.
