Is a service offered free of charge to all families in need of help .The service is funded by the Ministry of Welfare and the municipalities’ social service departments and is operated by Bayit L’Kol Yeled B’Yisrael (A Home for Every Child in Israel). Treatment is offered to children and youth up to the age of eighteen who have suffered sexual abuse, and to their families, residents of Jerusalem and environs. The treatment program includes consistent parental guidance, in order to provide the parents – and through them, the entire family – with the support they need. The staff therapists hold masters’ degrees in the different therapeutic disciplines, are skilled in treating children and youth and receive ongoing training and supervision in treating child victims of sexual abuse. The staff includes therapists, both men and women, from different sectors of the population, thus enabling cultural sensitivity to the needs of the different population groups. Treatment is available at the Meital Center at the Haruv Campus, Mt. Scopus; at its southern branch in Talpiot; in Beit Shemesh and the Binyamin regional zone.
