Yesh Tikvah is a great organization dedicated to helping those in crisis who have nowhere else to turn. The work that is done there is incredible and I feel so honored to be able to be a part of it. Thinking that even if just one person is helped makes all their work worthwhile. Yesh Tikvah truly makes a difference for so many people, and I am so proud and grateful to be a part of that mission. The board and staff are the kindest and most supportive group of people who truly care about others.
As a "client" who uses Yesh Tikvah's services, I can say this organization does amazing work.
As many people recognize, quite often those who are most in need of a mental health intervention don't have the financial means to pay for those services for the very same reasons that they require them to begin with; their mental health issues may severely hinder their ability to secure and maintain gainful employment. The result of this is often that those most in need of therapy are unable to pay for said therapy, and a viscious cycle ensues - one where the person's mental health continues untreated and thus deteriorates, even further preventing their ability to hold a steady job, leaving him or her ever more impossibly unable to climb out of their financial woes to a point where they can afford the therapy they so desperately need. The end result looks devastating.
I was on this path myself, and if I had not heard about the great work being done by Yesh Tikvah I shudder to think how much further my downward spiral would have continued. This is an amazing and (unfortunately) necessary organization, and I am confident that the lives of those whom YT have helped would presently be impossibly bleak if it were not for their aid. I would even go so far as to say Yesh Tikvah has literally saved hundreds (thousands?) of lives.
As a therapist who has worked with many Yesh Tikvah clients, I can attest to the tremendous impact that the organization is having on an individual, family, and community levels. Supporting this organization creates systemic change on each of these levels in complex and transformative ways.
Yesh Tikvah has embraced the adult community to help share the financial burden
for mental healthcare. Now they have extended their reach to adolecents and children.
I commend them and am happy to donate to this organization.
Yesh Tikvah provides an unique and very needed service to the community. The organization is professional and confidential. Allowing people to seek out mental health solutions discretely. Both my wife and I knew we needed to see a therapist but had no idea how we would be able to afford it. By word of mouth we heard of Yesh Tikvah and without questioning, they provided the funding for us to seek out a mental health specialist , who has developed my wife and I's ability to communicate and work through tough matters as a team. The funding and skills we got were life changing and saved our marriage. Thank you YT.
Yeah Tikvah is a wonderful organization.
They operate with sensitivity, professionalism and absolute confidentiality. What an honor to have them working on behalf of the Cleveland Community!
Going through a challenging time, I knew that it was necessary for my family to go for therapy. But the cost for multiple therapists was more than I could afford. Yesh Tikvah stepped in in an amazing way. Rabbi Joseph's confidentiality and willingness to help makes Yesh Tikvah a really special organization. Thank you for all that you do for the community.
