How we can help

Mavar offers a safe space to turn to, if you need 

Once you’ve made contact with Mavar and had an intake chat, you will be given your own personal mentor to guide you through all the help Mavar can offer. Your mentor will get to know you, listen to your questions and help you consider options so that you can make informed choices. Our mentors understand the Charedi and formerly frum community and the issues around questioning your position in that community.
