ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Established in 1982, Jaffa Institute works to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty by providing educational, nutritional, therapeutic, and social enrichment services to impoverished communities in Jaffa, South Tel Aviv, Bat Yam, and Bet Shemesh. It operates 40 programs, including crisis residences for at-risk youth, an educational enrichment center, food security initiatives, support to elderly and Holocaust survivors, and women’s empowerment programs.

GRANT PURPOSE

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.

During these difficult times, at-risk youth, families, the elderly, and Holocaust survivors need our help more than ever. With the generous support of The Foundation, the Jaffa Institute will be able to meet these increased nutritional and therapeutic needs in the South Tel Aviv region.
