Who we are, and what we do.
Into this void stepped for the Special-Needs Child. The program is active on all vacation days – Friday and Shabbos, Chagim and national holidays. Whenever the regular schools or frameworks are closed, the presence of the special-needs child at home creates a great strain on the family. Every week without fail, hundreds of volunteers go to these homes to pick up the child and take him/her to Club Centers in Bnei Brak, Yerushalayim, Bet Shemesh and Ashdod where the children are cared for with unbelievable dedication by a group of trained volunteers. The kids are taken away on overnight camps several times a year including Rosh Hashanah, Chol Hamoed Sukkot and Pesach, Shabbat weekends and Summer Camp. Respite Hotels in Bnei Brak and Jerusalem provide 24/7 hosting options for children with special needs, allowing parents to go away on vacation, participate in family occasions and just take an occasional breather.
