Blue Dove Foundation means more to me personally and professionally than I could have ever imagined. The leadership and initiative from the staff is incredible. I feel empowered to share my mental health story and feel constantly supported by the staff and the work Blue Dove does for the community. As an ambassador for the organization's mission, a lay leader who has partnered with Blue Dove for several events and projects, and as a Blue Dove program participant and community member, I am so grateful for the void that Blue Dove has filled in the Jewish community. Their impact is truly a ripple effect and I feel pride that Blue Dove was born in my hometown of Atlanta.

I’m really impressed with the Blue Dove Foundation’s ingenuity and original content programming to help people deal with and work through their mental health concerns. The organization has a seamless way of bridging the gap between mental Heath and Jewish culture to help people not only reflect on their mental health and wellness but also how it manifests itself in Jewish culture. That, for me, has been a game changer and helped on multiple personal levels for increased wellness.

The Blue Dove Foundation has changed my life. Through the incredible work they do, their volunteers, and their ability to become quickly relevant and an authority in the community -they are an example of what can be achieved when you put together a group of passionate individuals committed to repairing the world. They were picked by the department of human and health services to represent the Jewish faith and have been involved in several community programs focused on education, awareness, and outreach.
