Every child needs
to feel safe and
understood

But when children are:

Struggling academically or socially in school…
school can be overwhelming

Facing difficulty on the homefront…
home can be overwhelming

Feeling lost or alone…
life can be overwhelming

EPIC families answers the call

Our mentors give kids the emotional space, resiliency, and self-confidence necessary to overcome their challenges and lead wholesome lives.

And most importantly, they give them the practical tools to advance beyond their challenges.

A mentorship is:

The non-judgmental adult who gives them permission to open up

The safe space that gives them permission to unwind

The address that gives them permission to make themselves heard

Hear it straight from the parent’s mouths

I feel like Hashem sent a malach for my son.

“I feel like Hashem sent a malach for my son. He was struggling in so many ways, and the (mentorship) experience was like sugar among bitter herbs for him. My son even said to me, ‘Mommy, one day I want to grow up to be like Chaim’. Every child who makes Aliya should run, run to Epic Families!”

Mrs. Z., Parent

Epic Families was a lifesaver for my son.

“Epic Families was a lifesaver for my son. Every child needs at least one address to go to, one person in their life who they feel comfortable talking to…it can literally make or break the child. “

Mrs. G., Parent

Epic Families saved two of my kids.

“Epic Families saved two of my kids. My daughter was a different person after she met her mentor– It literally keeps her going for two full days after the session. Every child needs a mentor and role model outside of the family, especially in Eretz Yisrael.”
