Project Extreme is about new life and fresh hope for Jewish young people with significant challenges. Its inspiring results and compassionate purposes command profound respect."
Never in my life did I ever want to go back to where I slept the night before; whether it was my parents’ house, boarding house, Dunkin Doughnuts, or the park bench. Going home always meant getting ready to be attacked whether it was physically, verbally, or spiritually. Coming home to Miryam’s House has been wonderful. I've never before been to a a place where I feel completely safe. I finally know what home feels like!
Thank you very much for your incredible help in accepting T. to Camp Extreme Girls. Before the program, she was severely isolated, angry, and depressed to the point of being at significant risk for self-injury and suicide. Since returning from your program, her mood has improved dramatically, and so has her social and academic functioning. She now reports a strong desire to not only live but overcome the barriers in her life and succeed. Needless to say, our therapeutic work together has been much richer, and we are now able to speak about many topics that were previously off limits. I am so grateful to you and your esteemed staff for your dedication and care in helping at-risk teens in our community.
