A Family Away from Home
It all began from a place of understanding. Sarah Rivkah Kohn, was 9 years old when she lost her mother in 1993. In 2006, she started a magazine for teenaged girls who had lost a parent, providing them with a platform to connect with other girls in the same situation as well as mentors and role models who had “been there” themselves.
The success of the magazine led to more programming, eventually becoming Links, a forum for girls to bond with and learn from others who share their experience.
In 2012, the Links family grew again when Mrs. Mimi Gross created Shlomie’s Club, extending the Links network of support to 100s of boys.
In 2017, the Little Links of Pearls division was created by Mr. and Mrs. Mordechai and Mirrel Eissenberg to provide support for elementary-aged girls.
Links has since developed into an international organization serving over 800 families. Today, Links runs programs for boys and girls around the world, from preschool through young adulthood.
