What is Tikvah?
Tikvah/AJMI is a grassroots non-profit Jewish organization established in 1990 by concerned parents and mental health professionals committed to improving the quality of life for adult individuals with mental illness. What began as a forum where families could cope with mental illness positively and purposefully quickly evolved into a social program aimed at promoting community opportunities for individuals.
The program aims to reduce isolation, increase independence, provide educational opportunities, enhance Jewish identity and promote recovery for individuals. Since its inception, hundreds of men and women have found a loving and warm environment through the organization’s social programs and vocational opportunities.
Tikvah/AJMI’s current membership consists of over 200 individuals including a growing number who are without formal or informal family and community supports. The organization’s membership includes non-Jewish individuals with mental illness who are drawn to the organization because it provides a social and support network that is unique to the area.
