Nicole Glick & Jennifer Grossman

“Human lives are worth it. There’s no way to cut corners when it comes to people. We see that the mental health system is, to its core, broken. Instead of trying to fix it, we decided we were going to work around it by providing a service that caters to the true need—in ways that work for any type of family.

We have created a organization that provides innovative, comprehensive mental health care to the whole family, not just a sole individual. We wanted to fundamentally change the mental health model. We saw a need in the community and felt a genuine desire to take action—not just subscribe to a norm that in our view, wasn't working. Our whole mission is to provide care to the whole family so they can truly thrive.

Mental health does not discriminate. We've created an offering that works for everyone. And we've dedicated our lives to making sure we successfully deliver this. So that we can provide people with a service they can’t get elsewhere, in a time when they need it the most.

Coming out on the other side of Coronavirus, families are going to need this type of support more than ever. We work to help families identify realistic goals—and do what it takes to successfully reach them—regardless of their socioeconomic background. We believe service is providing families with the same level of care we would want for our own families, using principles of dignity, innovation and high standards as our framework.”

Nicole Glick and Jennifer Grossman have kids the same age. Nicole, a psychologist, and Jennifer, a philanthropist, traveled to Israel with the intention of engaging in meaningful service. Little did they know that this trip was the beginning of something so much bigger—the start of their organization, Shalom Tikvah: Whole Family Mental Healthcare.
