Neve Michael Children’s Village is the only multi-disciplinary children’s home in Israel to offer a wide range of professional services on one site, such as psychiatry, psychology, occupational therapy, social work, conventional and para-medical therapies and education.
Established in 1942, this 7-acre campus in Pardes Hanna is a safe haven for children 5 to 18 years of age who have been removed from their homes by Israel’s Welfare Department due to extreme traumatic circumstances such as family dysfunction or neglect, violence in the home or mental, physical and/or sexual abuse. Neve Michael’s mission is to provide each child with the love, care and professional treatment to overcome the abuse they have endured and to offer them a chance at a better future, they so deserve.
• $1,000 provides clothing, bedding, toiletries and professional assessment. • $720 provides an initial professional psychological examination and tests necessary to develop individual personal treatment plans. • $500 provides a child with school uniforms, shoes and eyeglasses for one year. • $360 provides holiday and Shabbat clothing for one year. • $180 provides a birthday celebration for a child.

Tal (10) and Ishai (8) are brothers from northern Israel who recently were brought to the Neve Michael Emergency Crisis Center. We knew from the Welfare Authorities that they had been abused by their father. What we didn’t know was the extent of the abuse.
