Emunah’s Neve Michael Children’s Village provides refuge and a loving home to 280 children and youth at risk, ages 5-18 years old, and is the only multidisciplinary children’s home in Israel.
Each child at Neve Michael Children’s Home has a story. Some can express it in words, while others can only convey their past traumas through the haunted looks in their eyes. In many cases, these unfortunate children have suffered mental/physical abuse and their natural parents are afflicted with mental illness or drug and alcohol addictions.
The children who cross Neve Michael’s threshold may have parents in the physical sense, but lack the emotional stability needed in a child’s young, tender life. The main objective is to break the vicious cycle of distress that has been a part of the children’s lives. With the after-school tutorial program and the various psychological treatments, the home assists in targeting the many areas needed to improve the quality of the children’s lives.
