For more than 140 years, The Jewish Board has been helping all New Yorkers. The Jewish Board promotes resilience and recovery by addressing all aspects of an individual's life including mental and physical health, family, housing, employment and education. Across the five boroughs and in Westchester, the Jewish Board serves more than 43,000 New Yorkers from all religious, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds each year. The Jewish Board is extremely proud to be one of more than 100 beneficiary agencies in the UJA-Federation of New York network
In Hawthorne, the Jewish Board has two residential treatment facilities, (RTFs) The Jerome M. Goldsmith and The Sally & Anthony Mann Centers. Here, a wide range of services for youth and adolescents who need personalized support to address the traumas they've experienced is offered. Each program provides comprehensive treatment for youth, ages 12-22. Residents participate in intensive milieu therapy, including: individual, family, and group psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy, special education and vocational training, all in a supervised home-like setting. Family involvement is an important component of the treatment.
The holidays can be a particular challenging time for our youth for many reasons. Your support is very much appreciated, as it truly can make a difference!
