Our Mission:

As a non-profit social services organization, we commit ourselves to addressing the social needs of communities and individuals throughout the Greater New York Metropolitan Area. We seek to accomplish this mission through the provision of our core programs of home companion services, professional counseling, supplementary educational services, entitlement information and referral services. We commit to use our resources to developing solutions to existing social problems, and to search out innovative ways of addressing the new problems that may arise. IBG is committed to providing high quality, low cost services to individuals regardless of color, sex, creed or ethnic origin. Our modern Social Services Center is staffed by supportive, professionally trained bilingual personnel. 

IBG is affiliated with Brooklyn Catholic Charities and is a member agency of United Way of New York City and of the Human Services Council. To learn how to donate to our organization, and to see a list of our contributors please click here.
