It is our mission to improve the well-being and independence of people in crisis by ensuring the best possible outcomes for each person through the highest standard of support and care. Through professional care, delivered in a humane and dignified manner, we reintegrate clients back into the community with purpose and in a safe environment – improving their future and breaking the cycle of homelessness and future personal crisis.
24/7 CRISIS LINE
JH operates a 24/7 phone service which offers support for people experiencing crisis, such as drug and alcohol addiction, suicidal thoughts, domestic violence and homelessness.
A community resource offering bulk billing, making psychological and psychiatric assistance within the reach of anyone who requires it.
Accommodation for clients seeking refuge from violent relationships, homelessness or any other circumstances that place them in a situation where they are without a home.

With its focus on prevention and early intervention, Jewish House provides pastoral services for the NSW Police and Emergency Services. Rabbi Kastel also provides chaplaincy services for Wolper Hospital, Prince of Wales and St Vincents Hospitals as well as Reddam College. This service underpins the Jewish House’s philosophy of “people helping people”.
Times of crisis inevitably raise questions of spirituality and soul searching. We take the view that assisting clients in a crisis or those emerging from a crisis must include an option to access spiritual guidance.
Rabbi Kastel, OAM and our psychologists are experienced mediators allowing people to work through their issues and reach an agreement, even for the most complex of family conflicts.
