Southern Brooklyn Community Organizations Active in Disaster (Southern Brooklyn COAD) is a coalition of nonprofit, faith-based, and community-based organizations working together to prepare residents of Southern Brooklyn for the impacts of emergencies and disasters and to coordinate local, community-based response and recovery efforts.

The Southern Brooklyn COAD is a project of the NonProfit HelpDesk – a division of the Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island – and is funded by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

Our members serve six different Southern Brooklyn Neighborhoods:

  • Sea Gate
  • Coney Island
  • Brighton Beach
  • Manhattan Beach
  • Gravesend
  • Bensonhurst
