Jewish House is an independent, not-for-profit charity providing crisis intervention and prevention services in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.
Jewish House was founded in 1983 by brothers Anthony and Roger Clifford. Their substantial donation enabled the purchase of the building at 17 Flood Street Bondi, and supported the organisation to grow and prosper through its early years. Jewish House continues to open its doors without bias to people of all religions and cultures in need of compassionate and professional help.
Our clients benefit from our early intervention assistance, and we achieve high success rates in helping people rebuild their lives after a major life event or crisis. Our comprehensive range of services are provided to individuals and families suffering from such issues as homelessness, depression, suicide ideation, alcoholism, gambling and drug addiction, domestic violence, mental illness, unemployment, family disputes and other crises. Jewish House provides immediate crisis intervention, a 24/7 crisis call line, safe housing, counselling, psychiatry and psychology services, pastoral care and job search support. We are the only service of this kind that understands that in some cases pets are integral to the process, and can accommodate them accordingly.
Jewish House has recently launched JH Kids – an integrative wellness service dedicated to helping children aged between 4 and 12 with resilience-building skills, emotional, physical and behavioural support. JH Kids understands that it ‘takes a village to raise a child’ and works with every person within your child’s ‘village’ to create a plan, including professional assessments and referrals. We establish, coordinate and track the plan – supporting everyone as we go to achieve the best possible outcome for your child.
Jewish House is committed to providing professional and clinical services, with compassion, all year round, to all people.
