The Neve Ofer House is an emergency residential facility that provides immediate refuge and long-term support to 13 children who have been removed from their homes by the social welfare authorities.
Supported by a professional staff and two loving "house parents,” the program provides the children with therapy, healthcare, nourishment, tutoring, and enrichment, while allowing them to continue attending their local school. Creative and recreational activities, such as art, cycling, equestrian, tennis, and photography improve the children’s physical and emotional wellbeing. Last year, based on the children’s interests, the program also offered dance and vocal lessons. Furthermore, the staff assist the children’s parents to improve their parenting skills and repair their relationships with their children. The children live at the House until a safe and healthy long-term arrangement is made.
