Founded in 1915, Aviva Family and Children’s Services (Aviva) provides compassionate support, therapeutic services and guidance to at-risk children and families through wraparound, community mental health, foster family and adoption and residential treatment services. Its Residential Treatment Program provides a 24-hour therapeutic residential treatment center for abused and neglected teenage girls. Located in Hollywood, the group foster home provides a safe, supportive and structured environment for girls who have often experienced physical, sexual and/or emotional abuse.


The Domestic Violence Prevention/Treatment Groups provides foster youth teenage girls in the Residential Treatment Program with support, education, and therapy.

Domestic violence and sexual abuse are gateways to other issues such as commercial sexual exploitation, substance abuse and perpetuating domestic violence and sexual abuse.  The grant from the Jewish Community Foundation supports our work to break this cycle of violence.
