For approximately 18,000 of Israel’s most vulnerable youth, a stable, safe, and loving childhood is not attainable in their home environments. Children most endangered by abuse, dysfunction, violence, and neglect are relocated to government-run Children's Homes (also known as Youth Villages or Mishpachtonim in Hebrew) for their protection.
While each Home is unique, most offer professional services such as psychiatry, psychology, occupational therapy, social work, conventional and para-medical therapies, and education in addition to providing all the children's' daily and long-term needs.
We support and amplify the crucial work of Children's Homes across Israel providing volunteer-lead extracurricular activities, camp, classes, mentorships, and more.
