About

Orr Shalom’s vision is to enable Israel’s children at-risk to realize their potential and their right to grow up loved, protected and respected, individual and special, in small therapeutic frameworks. According to its therapeutic approach, Orr Shalom develops and operates a range of educational and therapeutic responses, programs and services for children and youth at risk and their biological parents, from all sectors of Israeli society. Today, Orr Shalom cares for over 1,400 children, making it the largest organization in Israel caring for children and youth-at-risk who have been removed from their homes because of abuse and/or neglect.
