Neighbors Helping Neighbors




“BAY RIDGE CARES is an organization of neighbors dedicated to making our community a better place by doing all the good we can, in all the ways we can, for as many as we can.”     


​Bay Ridge Cares is a local not-for-profit organization that looks for ways to help those in need, helping to foster the sense of a “small town in the big city”.


We provide some financial assistance to people going through a crisis, work on efforts to improve quality of life in the neighborhood and organize activities to help bring our community together. Bay Ridge Cares is a completely volunteer run organization.
