JewishCare provides an extensive range of services that help people who are vulnerable or are in a crisis. This may include access to JewishCare's Mental Health, Disability, Domestic Violence or other relevant programs.
JewishCare adopts a Person Centred Approach which acknowledges that the person involved is the best authority on what type of help will make a difference to their lives and JewishCare’s caring and experienced staff will work with the family to determine how this help can be provided.
Some programs like Big Brother Big Sister and Family to Family Respite are proactive and aim to reduce the likelihood of problems occurring later in life. Others programs like Family Support and Family Dispute Resolution provide responses to immediate unforeseen problems. Programs like Mental Health and Domestic Violence have elements of both, helping to deal with a current crisis as well as providing an ongoing framework to reduce future problems.
JewishCare also has a number of ways that it can provide material and financial assistance for members of the community in a crisis.
