What’s New:

The Brooklyn PGRC would like to thank Irina Snetkova and Carly Guittierez for welcoming us into the South Brooklyn Connected Community Coalition (SBCCC). We are looking forward to the opportunity to work with community leaders on prevention initiatives in the neighborhoods of Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Sheepshead Bay, Midwood, and Gerritsen Beach. We look forward to being active members of this coalition, as the PGRC shares its mission of providing education and tools to the community to reduce the harm and problems caused by gambling addiction. Thanks to Irina, Carly and the entire SBCCC crew!



The Brooklyn Problem Gambling Resource Center is a program of the New York Council on Problem Gambling, which is funded by the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports.  The Brooklyn PGRC is dedicated to addressing the issue of problem gambling in Brooklyn through increasing public awareness and connecting those adversely affected with services that can help them.

This vision of transformation includes individuals with a gambling problem as well as their families and communities. With a focus on supporting the individual and reducing barriers to care, the Brooklyn PGRC is truly the premier center for providing problem gambling services in Brooklyn, NY.
