A Warm Home in the Heart of the South
The Emunah Neve Landy Children’s Home in Even Shmuel serves as a warm home for 75 boys from the age of 6-19. Our diverse, unique professional staff surround them with care 24/7 all year around.
The children at the Village face many challenges with courage and conviction. They chose to disregard their starting point in life and look forward with great inner strength.
Every hour is a new beginning, every day presents hope for a better future. The principle that forms the basis of our work is our belief in the ability of every child. Yes, every child deserves a chance, every child can succeed and go as far he wants to go.
The original Neve Landy Village comprises five groups, each group consisting of 10-12 children from the age of 6-13. Our children are nurtured by an all-embracing professional staff who are trained to respond to all our children’s needs. Every group has 4-6 guidance counselors, two National Service girls, a coordinator and a social worker.
Our two Beit Bogrim houses (for our oldest young men aged 14-19) are situated close to the original village but in Even Shmuel itself, intergrating into the community and providing a real opportunity for an independent life. This is so important because along with a great sense of satisfaction and achievement, our young men are on their way to a meaningful IDF/ National Service experience that will opens doors to their future.
Supporting all aspects of our young people’s learning experience is a key objective of the Beit Bogrim. Every teenager receives regular assistance according to his needs: Tutoring lessons, rehabilitative instruction, help with preparing homework assignments and improving computer skills. Every young person has a personal life skills program suited to his age and abilities. The program includes opening up a bank account, understanding proper financial management, getting a driver’s license, volunteering in the community (e.g. firefighting, Magen David Adom, distributing food packages), going out to work in the afternoons, housekeeping and various tasks in the dormitory. All this helps them to gain confidence and independent skills for life.
