Recently, we came to the conclusion that the dormitories and the professional assistance we provide are limited in quantity and can not cope with and provide a solution for so many homeless girls in the streets, so we came up with an idea for another solution to the problem: We decided to set up a "shelter home," a home that could provide immediate shelter and emergency care for the girls for only two months.
During this period the girls stay in the shelter while we provide all their needs. During this time, our professional staff stabilizes them, finds suitable jobs or a suitable learning framework, and focuses on finding jobs or institutions outside the problematic neighborhoods. While they are in the shelter, professionals and psychologists analyze their situation and build a unique treatment plan for each girl at her next stop.
It should be noted that most of the girls are intelligent, handsome, with high-sensitivity, and life wisdom. They are girls who have a high potential for development in any field. Most of the girls suffer from low self-esteem and self-image. One of the keys to the success of these girls' rehabilitation is their integration with normative girls, this constitutes the key to success.
There is a rehabilitative benefit in the interaction between the different types of girls, such as placement of girls in shared apartments, in which the girls are divided in the roles of cleaning the apartment, purchasing food, etc. and every girl takes a small part of the economic burden. It gives the girls space and a healthy place to live and indirectly encourages the girls to enter into a normal way of life.
We hold weekly psychotherapy sessions and encourage the girls to participate in the workshops and strengthen their motivation to voluntarily undergo an internal healing process and to build a healthy and independent life system. Things are done in a gentle and indirect way while ensuring that the girls do not feel that they are in a therapeutic institution.
We help the girls to find a job that matches their hidden potential and skills and accompany them so that they should persevere. We also encourage the girls to study academic studies, we help them obtain scholarships from various foundations and we accompany them in their progress.
Our main goal is to bring the girl to a stable mental and functional state and give her tools to prepare her for building a home, a relationship and successful parenthood.
We encourage girls to build individual personalities, help them formulate their opinions, and encourage them to find their own identity in all areas of life.
The team members and outside employees we hire in favor of the program are composed of professionals, each one in his field. Intellectuals, social workers, psychotherapists, coaches, etc.
