Jewish House is an independent, not-for-profit organisation helping people in need with crisis intervention and prevention services and support.
We provide care to people in the Jewish community, and all other communities; through a variety of services including crisis and short-term accommodation, psychological support, social work, pastoral care and chaplaincy.
We are non-judgemental and believe in the philosophies of the Jewish beliefs – compassion, dignity and respect for all who walk through our doors. We provide respite and support, helping people get back on their feet with practical and emotional skills necessary to rebuild a meaningful, independent life.
For 37 years, JH has led the way, implementing many new initiatives to improve the lives of those in need. Jewish House speaks up for the voiceless and seeks to support all people who are experiencing crisis and hardship and in so doing meets the challenge set for us by the Jewish tradition of Tikun Olam – the restoration and continuation of a just world.
