As a psychologist who has had the privilege of working with Yesh Tikvah, I would like to commend the organization for its compassion and professionalism. Their policies concerning confidentiality are the highest I have encountered in my work. I have been extremely impressed with every aspect of this outstanding organization. Anyone who has a need for services will feel very comfortable approaching and working with Yesh Tikvah. Any professional who has the opportunity to provide services will find the experience to be completely hassle-free as well as extremely rewarding. Yesh Tikvah puts its emphasis on HELPING, and in every part of its operation this emphasis shines through loud and clear.
I am writing in praise of Yesh Tikvah. I am grateful to this organization for providing funding so my family can get the help needed during a difficult situation. What impressed me most was the immediate action taken on all matters such as prompt returning of emails, and in expediting the paperwork process. Rabbi Joseph provided a seamless process for my family and it was a pleasure working with him. May he and the Yesh Tikvah staff have hatzlacha and brocha on all of their endeavors.
As a psychotherapist, I have been very impressed with the Yesh Tikvah mission - underwriting services for those in the Orthodox community in need of psychotherapy, but are unable to afford the full cost. The organization is professionally run with a dedicated director and strong Board.

There is no way we could get the help we need without Yesh Tikvah. When reaching out to Yesh Tikvah I was immediately taken very seriously in a very warm and caring way. The process was very quick and private, I could not have asked for a better solution. I was very hesitant to call at first, feeling ashamed about my situation, but I was greeted with nothing but love, and I was commended repeatedly for making the call. Thank you YT for helping where help didn't seem possible, and for bringing comfort to a difficult situation
As a lawyer representing nonprofits, I have been extremely impressed with the work of Yesh Tikvah and the professionalism it shows in meeting the needs of its clients. It has experienced significant donor growth in a short period of time which is evidence of the confidence donors have in its work; and it has significantly grown in the number of clients served, evidencing the need for the services it provides. I started as a consultant to the group and turned into a donor. This organization is great!
I work frequently with Yesh Tikvah and have only had positive experiences. Rabbi Joseph does his utmost to help every individual, going out of his way to ensure the mental health needs of everyone he encounters are met. Ultimately, without the valuable assistance that Yesh Tikvah provides, many would needlessly suffer with treatable mental illness.
Yesh Tikvah was created by Rabbi Alan Joseph because he saw an unmet need for underwriting the costs of mental health services for members in need from his community. He has been able to include some teens to fund mental health services for them. I highly support this agency and its services.
As a therapist in the community, I have seen first-hand how valuable Yesh Tikvah's services are to my clients. Many of them cannot afford to pay for mental health counseling and through the financial assistance that Yesh Tikvah provides, they can now access those services. This is a wonderful, professional organization that takes confidentiality very seriously. I have tremendous respect for the work that this organization does and to the donors who make this possible.
Yesh Tikvah is invaluable for any community. Your work has far reaching impact if you think about it. Helping someone regain grounding through a difficult time can make a difference for generations to come. No joke.
I will forever be grateful to Yesh Tikvah for what they have done for me,
They have transformed my life, and hence my family.
With the tools I have learned and the knowledge I have gained,
My life is so enriched, it will never be the same!
I no longer have inner battles, now I feel at ease,
Thank you Yesh Tikvah for the greatest gift, the gift of peace!
I've learned to embrace my struggles, and appreciate them too,
I've learned to focus on the good, and always feel gratitude!
I've learned how to become a better mother, and a better wife,
I am indebted to Yesh Tikvah for the rest of my life!
