Mother & Child Safe Rooms - Shabtai Levi Home
Who you will help
The Shabtai Levi Home (SLH) in Haifa provides emergency and residential services for children suffering physical and emotional abuse. From its inception in 1945, this non-denominational home has been a safe haven for every family who enters through its doors. The program has been recognized as a leader in child welfare. In 2004, the first Mother/Child Unit was built offering 8 private bedrooms for mothers to live with their children in a closely supervised environment. In this unit, they can maintain a crucial bond with their children, receive parental training - many have parenting difficulties - and transition back to an independent life.
Your donation will fund
Shabtai Levi Home currently has only one outdated bomb-safe room in the basement of this 5-story facility. They are seeking funds to build additional bomb-safe rooms on each floor of the building.
Haifa remains a target for rocket attacks from Lebanon. Having adequate safe rooms is a necessity for every building in Haifa.
