Founded in 1997, YEDID’s mission is to eradicate poverty in Israel by empowering Israelis to become self-sufficient and civically engaged members of society. To achieve this, YEDID runs a national network of 16 Citizen Rights Centers in underserved communities throughout Israel. Each month, thousands of low-income residents of Israel’s central and peripheral cities, towns, and villages turn to YEDID’s centers when they are struggling with issues such as obtaining affordable housing, securing public benefits, managing debt or legal issues, and finding employment. YEDID’s culturally sensitive services offer clients new opportunities to overcome poverty through workshops, trainings, and case management on an individual and family level.
