Solomon Mental Health Fund



The Solomon Mental Health Fund aims to ensure that members of the Jewish community who need mental health services can receive them, regardless of financial situation. If you are JNOLA-aged (21-39 years old) or JNEXT-aged (40-59) and want to make your mental health a priority, we want to support you!

How does it work? Thanks to our partnership with Jewish Family Service, community members can request the help they need directly. Just follow these easy steps:


  1. Contact Jewish Family Service using their contact info below.
  2. Inform your intake counselor that you wish to use the Solomon Mental Health Fund from the Jewish Federation for payment.
  3. Get the mental health help you need!

Once you give your intake counselor at Jewish Family Service our name, they will invoice the Solomon Mental Health Fund directly while keeping your identity anonymous. If you have insurance, they will invoice the Fund for the cost of your copay. All of your information will remain private at Jewish Family Service.
