Our Vision

"Our volunteer came on Shabbos afternoon in the pouring rain. I cannot begin to describe to you the feelings that went through me when she walked in the door. Shabbos is particularly challenging with our daughter as she gets really frustrated and bored quickly, and when it rains it’s a million times more difficult. I know it was probably a challenging visit but I just want our volunteer to know that for me it was a time out where I could gather the physical, emotional and mental energy to get back in the game and finish up the day in one piece. Thank you for making our lives that bit more manageable".

” I just wanted to say… Thank you so much for organizing everything for us. You sort all the details. I feel so organised when I get informed where I can volunteer. Its so simple and clear, everything runs smoothly. Thank you for the taxis. It feels so cool to volunteer.”


“The residents are amazing, they are so nice, they teach us valuable life lessons, they really treat you as if you were their grandchildren. We love singing to them and they sing along. We end up leaving with a smile on both our faces.”
