ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Founded in 2001, Aish Tamid of Los Angeles (Aish Tamid) helps at-risk Jewish teens and young adults (predominantly Orthodox) find themselves, reconnect to the Jewish community, and become productive members of society. Its services include counseling, a drop-in center with nightly meals, referrals to substance abuse treatment, parental support groups, educational resources, job counseling, mentoring, and social events.

GRANT PURPOSE

To formalize the Food Pantry and Subsidized Rent Program, which will provide community outreach, provision of food, ongoing rent subsidies, and linkages to educational and job resources for at-risk Jewish youth and young adults. The program aims to help youth rebuild their lives and their connections to Judaism.

With The Foundation’s support, Aish Tamid of Los Angeles is able to step up to meet the tremendous increase in need for food and rent assistance for our Jewish at-risk youth. This funding will provide nutritious food and rent subsidies to this, especially vulnerable population within our greater Los Angeles Jewish community, giving them hope during this difficult time.
