"Ahavah" serves 220 at risk children and youth aged 6-25, who come from moderate to severe socio-economic backgrounds. These children experience neglect, physical, verbal and sexual abuse at their homes. We work to improve their lives for the better.

We aspire to provide therapeutic-educational solutions for 250 children, teenagers and youth at risk who lack family support. To care, support, rehabilitate and educate; To provide a substitute for a home that allows for normal development, an opportunity for growth, and to help them break the cycle of adversity from which they came from and integrate into Israeli society as ordinary citizens.

Our main services are:

Residential Care Center - A system of therapeutic "Family Home Care Units" for 170 children ages 6-18. An organized, supportive environment is provided for the children in each Home Unit through the employment of a married couple who serve as a parental model for the children. This system is also designed as a post-hospitalization alternative for children in severe psychiatric conditions.
