Bayit Cham

A warm home-away-from-home for teenage girls at risk providing a hot lunch, social activities and English tutoring. Netanya

Rationale

In distressed neighborhoods, home life is often characterized by overcrowding and noise. Siblings typically share space without a quiet corner for homework or a private space for socializing; hence they often take to the streets. Add to this, parents who, of necessity, work and you have unsupervised children in less than ideal circumstances. A safe, supportive environment can help the girls enjoy quiet time or socialize, receive a hot meal, help with schoolwork, and turn to a trustworthy adult with their problems or questions
