programs AT NEVE MICHAEL CHILDREN'S VILLAGE
Here is a glimpse of the multitude of programs which exist to enhance the children's lives at Neve Michael Children's Village. These could not be possible without the generosity of donors like you. The Israeli government only subsidizes a portion of the money needed, but it is simply not enough to give the children the lives they deserve.

B'nai Mitzvah Program
Some Bar and Bat Mitzvah children at Neve Michael Children’s Village enter into adulthood while on the road to recovery from childhood trauma. Someday, they will look back at their Mitzvah celebration as the turning point in their lives, when they could look forward to a brighter future.
Therapy Enrichment Programs
At Neve Michael, there is an ongoing effort to mend the shattered childhoods of the boys and girls who come from backgrounds rife with family dysfunction, drug and alcohol addiction, violence and other horrifying circumstances. The professional therapeutic individual treatment program meets the needs of each child and enhances their development and well-being.
Teenage Girls Emergency Crisis Center
Israel’s Welfare Department refers teenage girls 13 to 18 years old, who suffer extreme mental, physical and/or sexual abuse, or who are in emotional distress, to the Neve Michael Teenage Girls' Emergency Crisis Center -- the first of its kind in Israel. Each girl is immediately evaluated, and an individual treatment plan is created for their specific needs.
The Birthday Room!
Neve Michael’s Birthday Room has many shelves of toys and games just waiting for our 300 children who anxiously await their birthday present, or a special reward for a good deed.
You cannot imagine the excitement of our delighted children when they enter this wondrous room where they can “take their pick” of board games, dolls, and other playthings.
Our caring staff is rewarded by the looks of happiness on the children’s faces when they see all the many toys and games they can choose from.
Sumalot Music Program
The amazing Neve Ensemble recently performed in New York City!
Sulamot, a program for social change, created by the Israel Philharmonic with Maestro Zubin Mehta, brings music to the children at Neve Michael Children’s Village and stimulates their senses and love for music. Give the gift of music to a child at Neve Michael.
Children's Emergency Crisis Center
