The Pearl and Harold Jacobs Zula Outreach Center is a safe haven for at-risk teens, many of whom come from religious backgrounds. Often, these teens and young adults have become estranged from their families and spiritual advisors, leading to a crisis in faith. Many struggle with substance abuse or are engaged in other antisocial behaviors. Zula’s team of psychologists, social workers, counselors and educational professionals guide troubled teens and help them return to normative social, religious and scholastic frameworks. Since the Zula Center’s inception, it has helped 33,000 young people overcome their challenges and thrive.
