This is a great project and a super resource for everyone. The Center for the Study Of Brooklyn at Brooklyn College is compiling a directory of the borough's organizations and institution.. Search by neighborhoods or by type of organizations. It's all there. And to make it even better, you can add your very own community-based organization. Check it out.

is pleased to announce the launch of our new:

This web-based directory includes over 1,000 Brooklyn-based community organizations and institutions. The directory is searchable by organization name, primary contact, zip code and neighborhood, as well as 15 different organization categories. We've also included a keyword search function. It is the Center's hope that this directory will serve as a valuable resource for Brooklyn residents, community-based organizations, institutions, funders, businesses, researchers, media and elected officials.

If you represent a Brooklyn-based organization, please help us to ensure that we have the most up to date contact information by doing a quick search for your organization. If the information is not up to date, please take a couple of minutes to complete the following Brooklyn Organizations Directory Contact Information Survey.

The Center for the Study of Brooklyn has many other projects underway in addition to the Brooklyn Organizations Directory. Please let us know how we can be helpful with your organization's work!
We provide customized reports via Data Analysis and Mapping Technical Assistance for community organizations, local government, researchers, etc.

We partner with Brooklyn-based organizations for strategic planning and community needs assessment projects- view the Brooklyn HIV/AIDS Strategic Plan and two new projects with Lutheran Family Health Centers , and the Heart of Brooklyn .
