Kadimah is a day program under the auspices of Ohel that creates a warm and relaxed environment for individuals facing the challenges of mental ilness. The members join together to share a comfortable and supportive environment where stigma, shame, and stagnation are left behind, as support, hope and recovery take their place. The goal of Kadimah is to help its members develop socialization and vocational skills, which will ultimately help them live more independently and become better integrated into the community.

Working towards these goals, Kadimah offers activities which serve the diverse needs of its members. There are support groups such as building self-esteem, socialization skills, goals to recovery and medication education groups. We offer an opportunity for members to learn computer skills in our state of the art computer lab, as well as creative writing, health and fitness, drama, and therapy through art. We have bi-weekly trips to museums or other educational venues and a monthly Rosh Chodesh celebration with live music provided by a band made up of our own members.

The Kadimah Beis Medrash is a quiet and comfortable place where members can spend time to learning, as well as daily Shiurim by local Rabonim.

Attendance is voluntary and the program is free of charge. We empower our members to participate in all aspects of program planning and implementation, working together with staff.

You can contact Kadimah by calling:
718-686-3187

You could contact Relief at 718-431-9501 to see if they know.

Another suggestion is to see if there is an organization near you which can provide kosher meals (maybe meals on wheels, or may a local Young Israel or Chabad).

If you are still looking, Ohel has residences and I believe everything is kosher.. I don't remember their number but their website is Ohelfamily.org Let me know if you can't find their telephone number.
