Hakarat Hatov from Libenu

Dear Friends,

I want to express my tremendous hakarat hatov and heartfelt thanks for your generous support of Libenu this past year. Thanks to this community, Libenu has been able to continue providing critical services that improve and enrich the lives of children, teens, and adults with disabilities and uplift their families and friends. This past year Libenu directly served over 500 individuals with special needs and their families, and had an impact on over 7500 people in our local Jewish community through our residential, respite, social/recreational, and advocacy programs and partnerships …and that number is only growing as we enter 2023! The need for Libenu’s services has never been greater.

This year our supporters helped:

  • Families have peace of mind for their loved ones’ future security, confidence that their loved ones will maintain their Jewish identity and family traditions, and a community of support.
  • Jewish adults with disabilities thrive in warm, loving, person-centered kosher homes with a lifetime of care in a community that celebrates all of their potential.
  • Jewish children and teens enjoy a safe, loving place to play and socialize while developing essential skills in our respite programs.
  • Caregivers of individuals with disabilities experience decreased stress and improved mental health through Libenu’s Lev Respite and Lev Lilah programs, which provide a desperately needed reprieve from the constant demands of caregiving.

Just as the flames of the Chanukah candles illuminate the night, your support of Libenu this past year was a light in the darkness for so many individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Your generosity brightens the path for entire families, letting them know that their child has a future that shines with inclusion, love, and true belonging.

There is still time to make a huge impact this Chanukah with a meaningful gift to Libenu. Thank you for making this world shine brighter with inclusion and belonging for all.

Thank you for being a hero for Jewish children, teens, and adults with disabilities.

Wishing you and your family a happy Chanukah,

Shana Erenberg, Ph.D.

C.E.O, Libenu
