Achiezer was established in 2009 at the behest of local rabbinic and community leaders who saw a need for change. These visionaries dreamed of creating one master organization, which would completely remove the burden of crisis management from the shoulders of shocked and distressed victims. They dreamed of an organization that would be there for the entire community—at any time, for any difficulty, large or small.

They dreamed of Achiezer.

Achiezer is a unique organization, which combines the strengths of all existing communal resources along with its own formidable capabilities. Achiezer spearheads and coordinates the many different aspects involved in assisting individuals and families confronted by challenges, from start to finish.

Whether the situation calls for medical, financial, emotional, or practical support, Achiezer's team of medical, mental health, and other professionals enables clients to access the assistance that they need in a caring, professional, and confidential fashion.

Working with the community, for the community, Achiezer provides unparalleled support throughout the duration of any difficult time.
