Re’im – Therapeutic Home for Children At-Risk

About Re’im – Therapeutic Home for Children At-Risk

Re’im is a unique out-of-home placement center for preschoolers and young children (3 to 11 years old) in severe crisis, who have been removed from their homes by order of the Youth (Care and Supervision) Law due to severe cases of abuse, neglect and abandonment. The home offers a temporary interim care setting for the purpose of protection, diagnosis, treatment and formulation of future recommendations. It houses up to 15 boys and girls.

The house is located in a residential neighborhood within the community, and models a real home in terms of its physical appearance, the number of children, and its loving, warm and intimate atmosphere. The children are integrated into community learning frameworks; they participate in after-school activities at the community center, make friends and visit children of their own age. The home operates with full awareness of the importance of child-parent relationships; hence parent-child reunions are held under supervision during the children’s stay, while their parents also receive guidance from the center’s psychosocial team.

The children are cared for comprehensively and professionally. The multidisciplinary therapeutic team includes a psychologist, a social worker, an animal-assisted therapist, an occupational therapist and a communication therapist. Our educational team includes a teacher and assistant, who help integrate the children into the community’s educational frameworks and work to advance them scholastically.

The home operates under the funding, cooperation and supervision of the Ministry of Welfare and Social Affairs and in strong partnership with the referring parties and other community services.
