Neve Ofer House - Outdoor Recreation
Who you will help
The distinctive Neve Ofer House is an emergency residential home for 13 children (ages 8-17 years) who have been removed from their homes by social welfare authorities due to neglect and abuse. Led by kind-hearted house parents, the children receive therapy from professional therapists and continue to attend their current schools, minimizing disruption during an already traumatic period in their lives. Neve Ofer also offers an after-school program to 30 additional children with academic, behavioral, and emotional difficulties. Staff have identified the need for a proper outdoor recreational and therapeutic space so that children can play outdoors. The current facilities are worn and potentially dangerous.
Your donation will fund
Funds are needed to replace the basketball court and soccer field, construct a shaded therapeutic corner, including a bench and trees for the children to relax outdoors.
Neve Ofer House is housed within the Jaffa Institute.
The Jaffa Institute
The Institute was established in 1982 in Jaffa Daled - one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in Israel - as a private, non-profit, multi-service social agency to assist severely disadvantaged children and families in the area.
