Beit Yossi

Beit Yossi, A therapeutic home for children and families, was founded in the year 2000 in memory of Captain Yossi Ohana. Beit Yossi designed to return hope to the lives of children and families at risk, in crisis and in distress.
Activities at Beit Yossi take place five days a week all year round. They begin immediately after school is dismissed, and continue into the evening. Upon arrival, children receive a hot meal, and then integrate into the extensive activities in small groups of about 15 children. They receive a personally-tailored solution to their study needs with a focus on remedial instruction; they take part in enrichment activities, and participate in discussion groups, animal therapy and art therapy.
Each age group is accompanied by two counselors, a national service person, and volunteers.
In order to connect the children with their natural home environment, and in light of the belief that providing a solution to the parents contributes directly to strengthening the children as well, the therapeutic team at Beit Yossi toils day and night to bring the parents into this safe and secure area. Parent-specific activities include training workshops for parents and treatment groups.

    Categories of Activities:
  • Education
  • Social Welfare
