The Social Service Board is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization affiliated with the New York Society for Ethical Culture. We leverage our resources to provide direct services to marginalized and underserved people in New York City. We build listening relationships to develop responsive programs that alleviate the symptoms of systemic injustice to promote a more compassionate city.
Participation in the SSB offers hope and assistance to people in need, but also offers immeasurable benefit for those who volunteer and participate. Ethics is the soul of a secular democracy. It inspires authentic self esteem, motivates our dynamic social conscience, and demonstrates the love, care, and trust which are the human glue of our society and helps us create a better world.
SSB members have created, financed, staffed and sustained many rewarding and meaningful “core projects” with their dedicated efforts.
