IFCJ proudly supports a network of homes throughout Israel that are providing basic necessities like food and shelter to over 24,000 homeless young people. When they enter one of these Fellowship Houses they find a loving and stable home.
“At age 15, for the first time in my life I actually felt safe,” he recalls.
Unfortunately, because Israel needs to use her resources to fight terrorism and defend her borders, there is often very little left to help homeless youth like Shaul. You can help fill that gap when you make a gift to the IFCJ Helping Hands Campaign.
Shaul is the perfect example of how our IFCJ sponsored homes change lives. After arriving, he signed up for high school and received extensive therapy. He then served in the Israeli army and went on to university. Today, Shaul is giving back as a youth counselor helping the next generation of homeless youth!
"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength" (Isaiah 40:29-31).
