What we have achieved
WE ARE PROUD : HERE ARE JUST A FEW OF OUR RECENT ACHIEVEMENTS
FROM CRISES TO CONTROL
Shuli and Leah came to Lev Lalev six months ago. Each of them had nowhere to go, no roof over their heads, and a dismal and dangerous future. When they arrived they were destructive and angry. Our staff took special notice and care for them over Pesach. While all of our girls receive holiday clothing, Shuli and Leah got a little more – a few dresses, stylish shoes, a spring jacket, and a necklace.
Neither girl had attended school on a regular basis before coming to the Home. Now, remarkably each girl looks forward to attending school every day. Both have progressed well and are known as the “happy girls.”
SUCCESS –THEN MORE SUCCESS
Mazal, lived in our Home from 2008- 2013. She did very well in school and received a partial scholarship to attend Social Work school at the University of Haifa (The Home helped her with her living expenses). She recently graduated and has joined a professional mental health team which specializes in pre adolescent’s behavioral intervention.
A BEACON OF LIGHT: GIVING BACK
Devorah came to Lev Lalev when she was just six years old. Her father was in jail and her mother was institutionalized. When she graduated from high school she stayed at the Home for three years, first as a mentor and then as the director of Arts and Crafts.
Now that her children have grown up she has time to give back. She volunteers three days a week at the Home. She is a role model and inspiration for the girls and the staff who are currently at the Home.
MAZEL TOV RACHELI AND SARI
With the help of our Lev Lalev supporters two young Lev Lalev women each got married.in great Simcha
Racheli married her chatan Moshe in a Tel Aviv suburb earlier this year Thanks to a rent subsidy from Lev Lalev they are living in their two-bedroom apartment in Givataim. Racheli is working as a dental hygienist not far from her apartment, and Moshe is completing his Torah studies. The young couple is expecting their first child, G-d willing, shortly before Rosh Hashanah.
Sari and her Chatan are living in Beit Shemesh. Left as an orphan at a very young age, two of our staff members walked Sari down to the Chuppah. Her wedding celebration was very moving- every girl at the Home came to dance with her. She has just completed her studies and expects to open her own Gan (nursery program) over the summer. Her husband has a job tutoring at risk boys.
Because of the care and concern you have shown to them they have built a very happy home.
