What is Tikvah?
Tikvah is a grassroots non-profit Jewish organization established in 1990 by concerned parents and mental health professionals committed to improving the quality of life for adult individuals with mental illness. What began as a forum where families could cope with mental illness positively and purposefully quickly evolved into a social program aimed at promoting community opportunities for individuals.
The program aims to reduce isolation, increase independence, provide educational opportunities, enhance Jewish identity and promote recovery for individuals. Since its inception, countless men and women have found a loving and warm environment through the organization’s social programs and vocational opportunities.
Tikvah Means HOPE
Tikvah is a social organization that encourages independence and empowers members to live life to the fullest.
Members are never asked to discuss their illness.
Tikvah welcomes people of all faiths.
Tikvah’s membership includes a growing number of people who are without formal or informal community supports. The organization’s membership includes non-Jewish individuals with mental illness who are drawn to the organization because it provides a social and support network that is unique to the area.
At Tikvah, we embrace the values of the Jewish culture and organize events that provide a safe environment to socialize and make friends without the fear of being judged. We touch the mind, body and heart of those we serve while integrating our deep compassion with highly effective programming.
