About UsThe Care for the Needy of Jerusalem association began its activities immediately after the Six-Day War as a group of friends who wished to help families harmed during the Six-Day War of 1967. The association was officially established in 1969 as The Association for the Rehabilitation of Families in Jerusalem, and its main goal was to help families harmed by the war and to help other needy families in the city.

Bayit Chaim - Safe House
Bayit Chaim is one of our most important projects, whose purpose is to provide shelter to those whose basic right to protection and shelter is denied. With our help they are able to renew family stability physically, emotionally, and financially.
Severe poverty prevents the needy from taking care of their medical problems. In some cases, medication is required for chronic diseases, special injections, emergency dental treatment, visual aids, hearing aids, and devices to ease mobility for the disabled and elderly.
In cases where we detect potential to stop financial decline before the fall or at least prevent poverty reaching the second generation of children we accept the family to the rehabilitation program.
According to the recent report by the National Insurance Institute approximately 53.7% of children in Jerusalem live below the poverty line. Many of these children say they have experienced hunger during their lives.
During visits to the homes of families supported by us we often find an empty refrigerator, or in some cases, no refrigerator, and our hearts ache especially when visiting the homes of large families. These families do not have to deliberate what food to send with the children for school and kindergarten and are forced to send plain slices of bread.
Our organization is a 501(c)3 charity. Your donation is tax-deductible - not to mention it helps the needy in Israel.
