Help for organizations and communities responding to and recovering from a crisis

The Jewish Community Emergency Response Team (JCERT) was established in 2002 in the aftermath of 9/11 to respond to mental health needs following a crisis situation. Professionals from across our community, trained in Psychological First Aid and other interventions, work collaboratively to support the community through consultation, resources and in-person interventions.  

JCERT is a program of the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, administered by JCFS Chicago, and in partnership The Ark, Associated Talmud Torahs, CJE SeniorLife, Ezra Multi-Service Center,  JCC Chicago, Midwest Refuah Health Center and No Shame on U.
