In the 1970’s, urban blight was threatening the Borough Park community. The legendary Ray Moshe Sherer, called together a group of dedicated lay-leaders to form an agency to concentrate on neighborhood stabilization and promote revitalization of these. Agudath Israel wanted to stop Borough Park from following the Brownsville and East New York communities that had virtually disappeared. And so, in 1977, the SOUTHERN BROOKLYN COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION (SBCO) was founded.

Since its establishment, SBCO has been a leader in the rehabilitation and stabilization of these neighborhoods, providing decent, safe and sanitary housing for low and moderate-income residents.
