The Family Nest
ID: 580190338    Category:
The main goal is to assist young mothers from the challenged area of Southern Ashkelon to exit the desperate cycle of welfare, abuse and addiction, transforming the mothers from supported to supporters themselves, their children and other mothers...
Founded in 1989 the Family Nest project located in the challenged Israeli southern coastal city of Ashkelon helps young mothers who are in desperate, life threatening situations; such as; drug abuse, desperate economic state, and are referred to the "Nest" for rehabilitation, guidance and support towards a better and respectable life.

The daily Family Nest program is designed to create empowerment, individuality and self-confidence in order to assist the mother to become a better mom, and provide her children with a brighter future, refraining from the unfortunate cycle of physical and emotional abuse that all too often characterizes these desperate family units. The everyday challenges to cope with domestic violence, drug/alcohol abuse, single parenting, new immigrant families and low socio-economic problems are tremendous. The uniqueness of the Family Nest program is the ongoing and individual care that helps to transform a mother in need of support into a supporter (a companion)
