Orr Shalom Launches new Website

This is a guest post by Alex Stein (previously of False Dichotomies).

I am proud to announce the launch of the new Orr Shalom website, which will be of particular interest to those interested in Israeli social policy.

Orr Shalom is Israel’s largest non-profit organization providing residential and therapeutic services to children and youth at risk who have been removed from their homes by the social welfare services due to severe abuse and neglect.

Orr Shalom is a pioneer in the field of out-of-home care for children. The new website, in both English and Hebrew, provides comprehensive information about Orr Shalom activities.

Established in 1980, Orr Shalom cares for 1300 children-at-risk from birth through 18+ years of age in a variety of frameworks, including foster programs, therapeutic family group homes, adolescent girls’ homes, intensive care facilities, and emergency foster homes.

In 2004, Orr Shalom was awarded the government tender for foster in Israel’s central region, making it the largest non-profit organization in Israel caring for children and youth who have been removed from their homes.

Orr Shalom works with children from every sector in Israeli society.
