Our commitment to improving the lives of people with developmental disabilities and diverse health needs extends to offering comprehensive support services.

Reena is dedicated to enhancing the well-being and quality of life for all members of our community through these vital support services. Here, you’ll find information about our respite services, which offer temporary relief for families and caregivers, and our mental health services that provide essential support for those facing mental health challenges.

Reena provides residential respite to individuals with developmental disabilities living with their families in the community. Respite is a proactive and preventative service which provides a safe and supportive environment where individuals can learn and flourish. It can prevent a family from going into crisis by giving them a needed break or time for other family members.

Respite is available for children and young adults starting at age 7. Our children’s location is wheelchair accessible and is available for children between the ages of 7 – 17.

Our young adult location provides respite for individuals aged 18+ with moderate to independent needs. This location is a three-bedroom, fully furnished and fully accessible apartment at the Sandy Keshen Reena Residence.

Days Available
Children (Ages 7 – 17): Friday – Sunday
Adults (18+): Friday – Sunday

Chai-Tikvah’s self-help groups allow people with mental health issues, such as depression, to provide as well as receive help. “Self-help groups can be a fun and uplifting way to make new friends and to share support and ideas through illness and recovery,” says Laura. “People in our groups support one another, which can help their self-confidence.”

Club Simcha is Chai-Tikvah’s community support group program. Groups meet once a week on Mondays, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. and can accommodate 20 to 30 people.
