Empowering Caring People to Turn Ethics into Action

The Social Service Board (SSB) of United Social Services, Inc. is an affiliate of NYSEC dedicated to helping the most vulnerable members of our community through social service projects that make a difference.  For over 130 years Ethical Culture has served New York City through the work of the SSB, building a more Ethical world.  The core programs of the Social Service Board focus particularly on children and adults at-risk and in need. 
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..  Learn more about our work or get involved.
