The street is not a home, especially in times of war

Hut HaMeshulash: a warm home for hundreds of at risk teens and young adults

“A little bit of light pushes away a lot of darkness”

Hut HaMeshulash was born out of a sense of commitment to helping at-risk teenagers and young adults discover their own special light.

Our vision is based on the belief that “a little bit of light pushes away a lot of darkness”. With love, unconditional acceptance, and a range of physical and psychological support mechanisms, we help young people discover and express their own unique strengths.

We believe that every human being is essentially good at their core, and that everyone, no matter who they are, deserves a fulfilling and dignified life.

The Trifold Model

Our program and approach are reflected in the three cords of home, supportive environment, and meaning.

Place (Home)

אייקון מושלש עליון2

Fundamental and immediate solutions for physical/existential needs: a safe space, food, clothing and rest.

Meaning (Connection to Self)

Empowering young people on the path to change and helping them to connect to their inner strengths and talents through music, theater, art and other activities.
