MY Extended Family is a first of its kind, innovative concept, specifically geared towards an ever-growing population of single parents and their children. Our goal is to provide a full service support group for the single parented homes throughout the New York metro area.

My Extended Family now provides clinical services to help children thrive.  Therapy (family and individual) and mentoring are provided at Mayan Yisroel or in the child's school.Therapists work closely with parents and with the school to help children succeed. Therapists also conduct weekly activities with children serviced by My Extended Family, which enables children to bond with a trusted adult in an additional setting. 


Dearest Parents
Dearest Parents,

As members of My Extended Family, we wanted you to be the first to know about our exciting expansion of services for this upcoming year. As you know from our successful inaugural season last year, we already offer a "homework club," exciting trips and events, and yom tov packages. This year, we are extending our program to include a clinical component, adding mentoring for elementary-school-aged children and parenting classes that address the specific concerns of single parents. We have hired more staff and made plans to enhance the activities and programs as well. At My Extended Family, our goal is to see the 'children of our family' be successful in life; we are confident that this more comprehensive package will help foster their success. Below please find a program outline, and then sign up online at Membership is $50 per family, scholarships available. We look forward to a productive and fun year!
