Altering trajectories, changing lives.
On a daily basis, we are altering these kids' trajectories towards a rich, full life.
Working in balance.
A balance of clinical supervision and engaging activities to build mind and spirit.
Every child needs an extended family.
My Extended Family gives children from single-parent homes the stability they desperately crave to grow and excel, with programs designed to bring joy and stability into a child’s life.
Our after school programs, field trips, and holiday programs give children a healthy environment to grow and thrive, and a dynamic place for them to learn about their heritage.
One on One
By paying individual attention to each child, under the supervision of our clinical directors, we can monitor all aspects their well-being — physical, emotional, mental, and financial.
In School Services
Therapeutic groups gather in schools/yeshivas and are facilitated by trained social workers and social work interns. We provide a sense of belonging, while teaching the skills needed to problem solve, increase self-esteem and help lead a secure path to a healthy well-being and stability.
After School Program
Friendship, group mentoring, and activities in the crucial hours after school.
Trained interns help children to succeed under clinical supervision.
Big Brother Big Sister
High school volunteers work one-on-one with boys and girls during activities.
Yomim Tovim & Holidays
Shabbos meals, Chol HaMoed trips, and Chanukah and Purim events.
Reaching out to schools and teachers to help our kids work through issues.
Empowering parents in their challenging role as single parents.
The time to act is now, when a shift in direction can change the course of an entire life.
Through no fault of their own, these children are at a 5-times greater risk of being lost to their heritage, and suffer from involvement with drugs and other problems. We have them now: as young people we get them on a healthy trajectory toward a stable, purposeful life.
