CHEMED is a charitable non-profit Jewish organization based in Rockland County whose purpose is to provide vital assistance to families in crisis due to the grave illness of a family member. It is often at the point where the family’s ability to cope has been taxed to the limit and children are in danger of being neglected, that CHEMED is called in.  CHEMED tries to  reduce the inevitable physical and emotional chaos in the home, and keeps the family unit from disintegrating.
