Neve Michael, located in Pardes Hanna, Israel, serves 250 children ages 4-18 years old from all over Israel who were brought to our doorstep at a tender age and under traumatic circumstances. Many have suffered mental/physical/sexual abuse . In many cases, these unfortunate children’s natural parents are afflicted with mental illness or drug and alcohol addictions.
Neve Michael Children’s Village is the only multidisciplinary children’s home in Israel. Besides providing refuge and a loving home for over 250 children and youth at risk, the Home has a 24-hour Emergency Crisis Center, the first Teenage Girls’ Crisis Center in Israel, an Elementary School on the premises, Day Care facilities that also serve disadvantaged children in the area, a Therapy Enrichment Center tailored to meet the individual needs of the children, and an External Crisis Center and Therapy Counseling Unit which helps keep families at risk intact, even under the most trying circumstances.
Neve Michael is under the educational supervision of Emunah.
Our Mission Statement
At Neve Michael, our mission is to create a family-like atmosphere for our children that is so sorely missing in their lives, to provide them with the best therapeutic care, develop their young minds, and mold them into young adults. We help our children overcome their family misfortunes, restore their capacities for normal
physical, emotional, and educational development, and guide them towards a better future.
Neve Michael was founded in the 1940's and has been building up a reputation for providing care and education for children/youth at risk ever since. It is our objective to break the vicious cycle of distress of our children. We are recognized by the state, and the Welfare Services constantly refer children at risk to our care. Our professional reputation is nationwide.
A Message from David Frydman, Director of Neve Michael Children's Home
In today’s high paced and fast changing world, a website is not just a luxury, it’s a necessity. Our Children’s Home may be a nonprofit undertaking in every sense of the meaning, but not unlike a commercial enterprise, we do not operate in a vacuum. Without the backing of our many friends and supporters, we would be unable to carry out our vital mission for Israeli children at risk. To draw support, the manner in which we present ourselves to the world is of utmost importance. Towards this end, we throw open our doors and windows and invite all those caring benefactors and donors, old and new, to take a look inside and see us as we are, at home at Neve Michael, on our website.
This site welcomes you to come visit us, beckons you to look at the fine work we are doing for our children, and implores you to help us with our mission. First and foremost, our site tells you about our children. It relates who they are and how they arrived at our doorstep. Through the personal stories of traumatized children living in our Home, our website shows you a glimpse at the deep, inner pain they have suffered. But our site also tells you about the positive things: The way we provide for our children, the love and caring we give them, the many wonderful programs we run to help our children on their road to recovery. On our website, our supporters are kept well informed with periodic updates on all our activities. What’s more, our children get to see this invaluable staging of their Home, and the feeling of importance it gives them can only be matched by the sense that there are people who really care about them.
Our mission is one of great humanitarian importance, and merits the high level of presentation that our website provides. If it opens the minds and hearts of just a few caring individuals who are willing to lend a helping hand and make a difference in the lives of our children, than I can truly say that www.nevemichael.com is an asset of Neve Michael.
David Frydman, Director of Neve Michael
