ELEM/Youth in Distress in Israel

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: January 10, 2013, 6:09 PM


ELEM is Israel's leading non-profit organization dedicated to the treatment and rehabilitation of abused, neglected, and adjudicated Jewish and Arab Israeli youth. The youth we serve face tremendous hurdles; many live below the poverty line or struggle to assimilate as new immigrant. With a network of 270 professionals and 1,700 volunteers, ELEM is able to reach tens of thousands of youth each year. ELEM provides a unique brand of non-judgmental, innovative aid including group and individual therapy,mentoring, occupational and educational placement, and vocational training. ELEM also operates a wide network of counseling and support centers, as well as a fleet of outreach vans that take to the streets to reach the hidden "children of the night".

The U.S. office of ELEM is located in New York City and is involved a variety of fundraising activities to support ELEM's programs for at-risk and troubled teens in Israel.
