A home where children are smiling
About 140 boys and girls between the age of 6 and 18 live in Emunah Achuzat Sarah Children’s Home and consider it their home. Each child is unique but all of them have a history of neglect and or abuse. The welfare authorities and the courts have determined that for these children, remaining with their dysfunctional families would be harmful to their physical and emotional growth and well-being.
The caring staff of Achuzat Sarah welcomes the children with open arms, a smile and a great deal of patience. We are determined to help the children learn to deal with their difficult experiences while removing the heavy burdens that prevent them from having a childhood. The Home helps the children develop in a healthy, supportive and pleasant atmosphere with Jewish values. We prepare them for an independent adulthood by helping them realize their full potential.
Since it first opened its doors in 1955, the Emunah Achuzat Sarah Children’s Home has given hundreds of children the tools they need to succeed in life. Many of the Home’s graduates have gone on to receive advanced education and establish stable, loving families. Achuzat Sarah and Emunah, are proud to see the graduates integrate successfully into society and become responsible members of Israel’s army, workplace and social fabric.
