CHANA strives to create a healing community…one that responds to abuse with action and compassion…not silence and denial.

Hope, Help and Healing

We believe that every home can be a place where conflicts are resolved with respect, shalom bayit.

CHANA offers a Jewish community program to the needs of women, men, children, and elders who experience physical, psychological, sexual, or financial abuse.  We provide crisis intervention, education and consultation, and we advocate for community awareness, safety and healing.

In almost 20 years of service, we have helped women, men and children to be safe. We treat individuals with utmost dignity and compassion, offering services in a caring and sympathetic manner, rachmanut. We provide a Jewish response, which means caring for all.  So individuals and families come to us, and professionals refer clients to us.

We envision an aware and responsive community where all individuals are empowered to live with security and self-determination.  Everyone deserves to feel and be safe.
