Founded in 1999, Hut HaMeshulash was established to provide programming, shelter, and support to at-risk youth and young adults (ages 14-25) in Jerusalem so that they may reintegrate into society as confident and capable individuals. The populations served include survivors of physical/sexual abuse, high school dropouts, and homeless youth. It runs three major programs: the Open Space Drop-In Center, serving hundreds of at-risk youth, seven days a week; a Residential Home for at-risk young women, including expectant mothers; and a Residential Home for at-risk and homeless men.
To mitigate the economic hardships faced by The Foundation’s grantees in Israel, resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, and to help them achieve long-term organizational sustainability.
