Development of Innovative Social Services
JDC Ashalim champions social entrepreneurship to bring about observable change for Israel's next generation. We design and implement innovative approaches and methods for Israeli social welfare, education and health services.
JDC Ashalim programs address the needs of children, youth and young adults from birth to 25 in situations of risk from all backgrounds and communities in Israeli society. Preschool children receive better care and services, at-risk children and their families grow up in a more comfortable reality, and young adults at risk find their way through education, counseling and professional guidance.
Over 250 programs for children, youth and young adults at risk and their families have been developed over the past 20 years by JDC Ashalim and its partners. In recent years, three out of every four JDC Ashalim programs have been absorbed by government ministries. Approximately 80,000 children, youth and young adults at risk took part in JDC Ashalim pilot programs across the country.
