History

Hut HaMeshulash was founded in 1999 by Igal and Dana Goldstein to care for the youth who wandered the streets of Jerusalem without activity or employment.

At first, the youth met in a two bedroom apartment in downtown Jerusalem. Today, our Drop-in Center serves hundreds of at-risk youth annually. The Center operates in the afternoon and evening hours and provides a warm dinner meal and enrichment activities. In 2006 the Residential Home for Young Men was established and in 2009 the Residential Home for Young Women was created. The Residential Homes provide housing, physical and emotional support, warm meals and educational training to at-risk men and women.

Hut HaMeshulash has 45 employees, including social workers and counselors, National Service volunteers and many others.
