Homes for Children and Teens at Risk
Beit Moriah operates two “homes” that provide shelter and assistance to 30 at-risk children between the ages of six and ten. Most of these children come from troubled family environments or families in need. Each location provides the children with after school meals and homework help in a healthy, family-oriented environment run by our professional staff.
Our Girls at Risk program provides safe “home” environments similar to those for the children at risk for 50 teenage girls who have had difficult upbringings.
The girls participate in a range of activities, including photo therapy sessions to help them express their feelings, business skill tutorials to develop valuable tools for success, and assertiveness/self-defense training to help them protect themselves in an increasingly dangerous world. Thus far, the girls have flourished with the help of these activities, producing impressive photos and developing important life skills within a safe and nurturing atmosphere.
