The Jewish House COVID-19 Crisis Portal has been launched as part of Jewish House’s Crisis Response to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) global pandemic crisis.
Our aim is to keep providing 24/7 crisis services to vulnerable people in our community while keeping people up-to-date with the most current information, tools, factsheets and resources, so you stay socially connected whist in physical isolation.
Jewish House continues to provide crisis accommodation, long term affordable housing, psychology, counselling, case management, resilience building workshops, children’s workshops and pastoral care during this time.
As a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have launched the following new services: Medication delivery service, virtual workshops, DBT Psychology & counselling sessions via phone, daily social isolation calls, remote IT support services, and the launch of this Jewish House COVID-19 Crisis Portal.
On this platform, you will find a range of resources including links to our JH workshops, services and clinical team, official health resources, mental health and wellness toolkits and advice, children and family resources, nutritional information, pet information, Pesach holiday information, Synagogue information, training sessions for Rabbis & Rebitzens, videos, and much more.
JH is here to provide you and your loved ones with crisis support to help you through these difficult times; We are all #InThisTogether.
