Orr Shalom


Orr Shalom rescues and cares for some of Israel’s most at-risk children who come from deeply traumatic and dysfunctional backgrounds across Israeli society – secular and religious, new immigrants, Jewish and Arab. All the children in our care have been removed from their homes by the Social Welfare Services after suffering extreme abuse, neglect and tragedy.

By providing safe, loving homes and educational, psychological and material support, Orr Shalom enables the children in its care to break the cycle of abuse, overcome their pasts and prepare for life as independent adults. Today, 1,400 children live in Orr Shalom foster families and group homes across Israel where they can receive professional help, unconditional love and an opportunity for a better future.
