Boys' Facility in Bnei Brak

Keren Hayeled serves boys and girls, ages 6-14, in its facilities in Bnei Brak.

Its Boys' Dormitory and Girls' Dormitory each serve 60 children. The children are divided into groups based on age, educational level and personal needs. Each group consists of 8 to 12 children, and is led by a specially trained counselor who attends to their needs during all non-school hours. These counselors are certified by Israel's Ministry of Welfare.

Each dormitory is also staffed by 3 social workers, 2 psychologists and 1 psychiatrist. These mental health professionals develop a personalized rehabilitation program for every child. They work in tandem with the child's teachers, counselors and parents to see to it that he or she achieves his full potential.

The Mishpachton Villa

Keren Hayeled also runs a Family Living Facility for children with particularly difficult backgrounds who need extra care and individualized attention. The facility currently serves 10 children, ages 5-11. It is staffed by a couple who serves in the role of parents, and by 2 counselors and a social worker. This facility is the next best thing to home.

Although the children who come to Keren Hayeled can often no longer live with their own families, Keren Hayeled works to develop a positive connection between the children and their parents whenever possible. It hosts special activities for parents and children to strengthen the bond between them, and its staff maintains ongoing contact with the children's families.
