The Areivim Girls program is run by
I became aware of Areivim for girls, a few weeks ago,when I was desperately networking for an eighteen year old girl,from a severely dysfunctional home.As a Flatbush resident for many years ,I know a lot of people who are involved in all types of chessed.I could not find ONE place for Sarah,due to her age and emotional problems,that were able to take her in for more than a day or two.I finally connected with Rabbi Gluck,and within minutes of speaking to him ,I felt relieved that somebody,somewhere, understood what Sarah needed.and was able to provide a practical solution.
The very next day I had sarah packed up , and on the way to Pomona,NY.
Sarah is not an easy case,and needs a tremendous amount of help.Rabbi gluck and Miriam Devorah are working tirelessly to connect sarah with therapists,doctors, as well as driving her to shiurim daily.They are in tune with every aspect both in gashmius and ruchniyus.There is no other program like this that exists to my knowledge.A safe haven for jewish girls that do not fit into any category ,and are not enrolled in school.A place where a girl ,who has not had much joy in her life,called me on the fourth night of Chanukah ,to tell me she just had the most amazing experience doing paint night.A place where she has counselors to speak to,and most importantly ,a place that she feels safe.
It is vital for all the lost Jewish teenage girls out there ,that don't fit into any particular mold ,to have a safe haven called Areivim exist.
With much appreciation,
