Drop-in Center

In May 2016, JQY launched the only Drop-in Center for at-risk Jewish teens and young adults. This unique program, based in Midtown Manhattan, is a space in which teens and young adults, ages 13 to 23, can:

  • Check in with licensed social workers
  • Meet others they can relate to
  • Participate in support groups
  • Have access to health and safety resources
  • Enjoy a hot kosher meal
  • Be part of an affirming community

Our participants come from Jewish communities across the Orthodox spectrum- from Borough Park to Teaneck, Staten Island to Riverdale, Cedarhurst to New Rochelle.

Many struggle with depression, anxiety, abuse, homelessness, self-harm, suicidal ideation, suicide attempts, isolation, loneliness, or despair.


You are not alone.
