An Important Mission
Ahava Village is a residential center for children ages 6-18 coming from abusive home situations. Designed to help children overcome severely dysfunctional backgrounds, Ahava offers different kinds of therapy and a range of activities to help children persevere with hope and optimism. Ahava plays a leading role integrating these children and youth into Israeli society to be useful citizens leading fulfilling lives.
Meet a Mishpachton
In each of the fifteen group apartments in Ahava Village, an average of thirteen children at risk ages 6-18 find calm and comfort in the nurturing environment of a mispachton, where “foster parents” and others provide the warm personal care, guidance and validation of a loving family. In these homes, the children engage in all the normal activities that are part of their development and growth: helping with meals and chores, doing homework, watching TV, computer time, scheduling recreational pursuits, participating in hobbies and enjoying the company of pets. Because of limited funding, many of the programs in Ahava rely solely on outside donor support. When you adopt a family, your ongoing monthly contribution will enable Ahava to continue the range of opportunities available to the children. As a sponsor, you will receive a photo of a family, and a monthly email from one of the residents of the mishpachton you support, with updates on life in the village community. And as a sponsor, you will become familiar with the outstanding work being done in this refuge from harm.
Your Monthly Donation Will Make a Positive Difference
100% of your sponsorship will be transferred for the mishpachton in Ahava Village.
Your monthly contribution will enable a child in Ahava to continuously receive the best care possible to heal from nightmares of the past. With your generosity, Ahava can continue its life-saving work that makes such a noticeable and outstanding difference in the lives of so many children. Thanks to you, a child can blossom with the real chance of a successful and happy future.
