KADIMA PLUS* ...FOR SENIORS
The "Kadima Plus" program was established in 1993 in
collaboration with Jewish Family Service and Jewish Senior
Life. This program was in response to the many seniors in our
community who were disconnected and not receiving critical
mental health services. Kadima Plus ensures that seniors,
diagnosed with severe and chronic mental illness, remain in their
homesand connected to supports and loved ones with in-home
and case management services and counseling.
"One day after school I decided
I wanted to raise money for a
charity as a way of giving back to
my community. I made beautiful
beaded key chains and sold
them to my friends and family.
After raising $250, I researched
possible charities where I would
want to donate my money.
When I read about Kadima,
I was extremely impressed
with the Child and Adolescent
Program that helps children
with emotional and behavioral
disorders. Working with children,
whether I am babysitting or
volunteering, is a major part of
my life which is why I felt the
Child and Adolescent Program,
through Kadima, was the perfect
organization to support with the
money I raised from making key
chains. I feel it is so important
to educate people about Kadima
and the wonderful work they
do to help make a difference
within our community."
