It’s time for ARC HOUSE.

Since 1991, Lubavitch of Bucks County has been serving the material and spiritual needs of our county, building community and providing guidance and support to individuals and families, including those struggling with mental health and addiction.

The founding of ARC HOUSE formalizes our efforts to help stem the tide of the opioid crisis and address the mental health needs of the Bucks County community and beyond.   

“The issues we are dealing with, opioid abuse and mental health issues, don’t know any boundaries,” he said. “It doesn’t look at the color of your skin, your religion, your gender, it touches every human being.”
— Rabbi Yudy Shemtov
