Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Amudim's goal it to increase communal awareness of issues that have been denied and neglected, such as child sexual abuse and addictions, while providing comprehensive support to individuals and families.

Amudim's awareness events, attended by hundreds and viewed by thousands online, raise community consciousness about issues that until now were suppressed and denied, particularly Child Sexual Abuse (CSA), addictions, and mental illness. Amudim's emergency crisis line is open 24/7, with immediate dispatching to professional Case Managers trained in crisis intervention. Staffed by 14 professional Case Managers, its resource center provides confidential, individualized, direct support and referrals for individuals, families, and organizations.

By helping people lead healthier lives, their overall wellbeing and personal wellness will also be accomplished. We have also developed a curriculum which is an evidenced-based SEL program, which has proven data to increase the educational experience for students overall, as well as bring up their grades, lead to healthier decision making, and overall success in life. We pride ourselves on partnering with other NGOs as well as government agencies so that we can accomplish our goals in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.

We have a dedicated and involved board of directors, the strong backing of Jewish communal leadership and rabbis, excellent working relationships with major communal organizations, an experienced professional staff, and cutting edge media, communication and social media capabilities.

Amudim has been the leading organization invited to present at major national and international conventions of the clergy, lay leaders, government agencies, and educators on sensitive topics like child sexual abuse, addiction, mental health, and other related topics. It has held over 350 awareness events in local communities across the U.S. attended by over 15,000, individuals, community members, therapists, members of the clergy, and educators. Many events have been live-streamed and posted on the internet; thus far, they have been viewed online by over 250,000. We have also produced 6 award-winning PSA videos, relating to abuse, addiction, mental health, coping skills, and suicide prevention, which have been viewed over 1,000,000 times online. Since its establishment in 2014, Amudim has helped over 9,500 individuals and families by providing comprehensive case management services, as well as access to heavily subsidized expert psychotherapy.
