Welcome to the Suffolk Community Council

The voice of human services for over 77 years, the Suffolk Community Council is a non-profit 501(c)(3) umbrella organization of community service groups dedicated to the improvement of the quality of life for all residents of Suffolk County, fostering self-determination and the empowerment of those who feel disenfranchised.

The Council represents a wide constituency which includes public and private health and human service agencies, the business community and members of the community-at-large.




                       Celebrating 77 Years!



Recent Developments at the SCC:


The Network of Women with Disabilities, a project of the Suffolk Community Council is proud to announce the completion of their Guide to Hospital Diagnostic Tests. Members of the Network visited every one of the 12 hospitals in Suffolk County to asses the capacity of the hospital to perform medical tests on people with disabilities. This report rates the aptitude of each hospital to provide diagnostic tests to people with various disabilities. Click here for the on-line report, a hard copy will be available in September.

+ ACRONYMS   Many people working in the field of health and human services often rattle off acronyms like the drop of a hat, but there are some who do not know or remember what their meanings are and those just entering the field are at a total loss by the alphabet soup of acronyms.  The Suffolk Community Council is delighted to offer a listing of Acronyms, a product of Michele Del Monte and Dolly Ciapetta, both members of the Suffolk County Department of Social Services Commissioner's Advisory Council.  This is a wonderful resource and we are most grateful to them and the agencies and Departments for their generous support of their time.  The definitions have been taken directly from the departments, agencies, regulations or laws.  They were not edited to fit neither our format nor perceptions; they are simply a matter of record.  Also, rather than redefining all the provider agencies in the area, this simply refers people to the Community Resource Database of LI, as this is less duplication of effort, and better utilization of resources.  Click here for the Acronyms list...


Suffolk Community Council has moved our operations but our commitment to our members and issues as well as our phone number, fax, website and email remain the same.

Our location is now with our wonderful colleagues at United Way of Long Island as we join as the 3rd agency at their office along with Urban League and Wyandanch Homes and Property.

About our Logo:

The Suffolk Community Council's logo conveys a fresh and spirited direction for our agency. We selected an S shape contained within a C curve to represent the letters starting the words Suffolk Community and Council. But combined, the illustration offers so much more.

The S, representing Suffolk, is contained within the C to illustrate that our community action focuses on the Suffolk region. The S was designed to look like a pathway, since the collaborative work of the Suffolk Community Council provides a path to stronger community ties and services within our region.

The C curve was shaped like a wave to convey that we can create waves of power within the communities we serve. The wave is tied together with our new tagline, Creating Strong Communities, to reinforce our overarching goal.
