Young children from problematic and dysfunctional families on the borderline of risk, suffer from emotional and behavioral disorders, that impact on their behavioral, social and scholastic performance. Since their parents are incapable of caring for them adequately, they are in danger of dropping out of school, roaming the streets and consequently, may be removed from their homes.

Goal
To create a rehabilitating change within the borderline at-risk family that will prevent the removal of the children to out-of-home residential facilities.

Objectives

  • Improve the children’s emotional, social and scholastic capabilities
  • Strengthen the bond between children and their parents
  • Improve parental skills
  • Empower the family system
  • Target Population
  • The facility cares for some eighty children aged 5-13 and their families, who reside in Hadera and its environs.

Program Description
Children are referred to the program by the welfare authorities.
