“Sometimes, I just can’t deal with my kids…I’m scared what I might do.”
“I have no idea how I am going to make-it through the day if I don’t have a ‘drink’ and my meds.”
“I love my kids, but I just can’t take care of them…please help me!”
How sad to hear parents express these sentiments. Yet, at Emunah Youth Villages and Children’s Centers, it’s exactly what we hear.
- Parents overwhelmed with the day-to-day care of their families.
- Parents who may have mental and/or physical challenges.
- Parents who are unemployed and on welfare.
- Parents who were abused and/or neglected themselves, as children.
- Parents who physically and/or mentally abuse each other, and their children.
ONE HAPPY FAMILY is an innovative, one-of-a-kind, program, operated in each of our five Emunah children’s homes, that helps parents overcome these challenges and build healthy, loving and stable relationships with their children. Through interactive therapeutic sessions, support groups, formal and informal educational workshops and projects, parents are given the tools necessary to enhance their parenting and inter-personal skills, empowering them to be the parents they want to be.
