Someone to Run With

Organization: 
ELEM
Grant Amount: 
$10,000

Someone to Run With is located in Tel Aviv and serves adolescent and young adults (ages 18 to 25). These young people are often drug-addicted or homeless and wander the streets without knowing how to find help.

The project operates a drop-in center that provides humanitarian aid in the form of hot meals, warm clothing, showers, etc. The youth receive assistance in contacting community services and in locating temporary living accommodations in hostels or rented apartments. One day a week the center is open exclusively for young women, so that the specific needs of this population can be addressed more effectively.
