Organization Description: 

Founded in 1987, Beit T’Shuvah is a residential addiction treatment center, congregation and educational institute, which operates a 138-bed residential program and offers a wide range of addiction treatment services, including intervention services, alternative sentencing, gambling treatment, and support for families. It also operates a Professional Clinical Training Program with internship training for psychology and social work students; a youth addiction prevention program in partnership with synagogues and Jewish institutions; and a social enterprise to provide residents with work experience and work therapy. 

Grant Purpose: 

To strengthen the infrastructure, leadership and sustainability of the organization through a plan that focuses on diversification of funding, restructuring of clinical staff, and a guided leadership transition.

A grant from the Jewish Community Foundation helped establish Beit T’Shuvah 32 years ago, and we are grateful for the opportunity to further strengthen this important partnership. As we look toward our future and transition from a founder-led organization to the next generation of leaders, The Foundation’s enduring support will help us sustain our mission so that we can continue to provide addiction treatment services to the Jewish community and beyond.
