About Moadoniot – After-School Childcare Facilities for Children At Risk
Since 1976, A Home for Every Child has been operating a network of after-school childcare facilities (Moadoniot) for children at risk. Today, our NPO operates six facilities: two in West Jerusalem for the Jewish population and four in East Jerusalem for the Arab population.Moadoniot offer afternoon group therapy settings for children at risk and in distress on the spectrum of abuse, abandonment and neglect. The children come to these facilities mostly from multi-problem families that have difficulty meeting their children’s needs. Emotional and behavioral problems characterize these children, who have experienced neglect, violence or other abuse within their family, or were exposed to domestic violence, or who suffer from large educational gaps compared to their peers.
Each Moadonit facility is designed for approximately 15 children in a certain age group. It gives them a complementary, enriching and nurturing framework. We build a unique treatment plan for each child, according to its abilities and needs.
The ultimate goal of our facilities is to prevent the removal of children from their homes while providing intensive care in the community and fulfilling the needs that the family does not meet. The facilities offer a wide range of activities and services, including group and personal therapy, homework help, educational-social enrichment, after-school activities and meals. The Moadonit’s activity involves contact with the parents and striving to improve and strengthen parent-child relationships.
Moadoniot operate with the cooperation, funding and supervision of the Jerusalem Municipality, the Ministry of Welfare and Social Affairs and the Ministry of Education.
