Kadima provides a continuum of residential, clinical and educational/outreach programs for members of the community with mental health challenges.




The Creative Expressions Program provides creative enrichment activities for Kadima clients, both as programming in-house, as well as in the community. This includes the visual and performing arts, photography, writing, poetry, jewelry/crafts and culinary arts. Activities may include lessons or individual/group activities at the Lois and Milton Y. Zussman Activity Center, increasing opportunities to participate in creative activities at other organizations, as well as developing more opportunities for clients to attend, and participate in community expos, markets, programs and entertainment events.
