Project Spotlight: ELEM Homeless Shelter

The Fellowship  |  February 18, 2020

The Fellowship proudly supports Jerusalem’s ELEM shelter, which opens its doors to homeless young adults. These are people ages 18-26 who have nowhere else to turn. This is a place where young homeless people can take a hot shower, do some laundry, or receive clothing that’s been donated to the shelter. There is a stocked kitchen with hot meals, coffee, and snacks, and a computer in the living room area. Here, they have the comforts of a real home.

But most important, the shelter offers a therapeutic environment. ELEM’s social workers and other mental health professionals aim to help these young people in every way possible. Their ultimate goal is to help them off the streets for good and make them self-sufficient.

We are so proud to support this program that brings hope to so many Israeli young adults who face daily challenges. And we hope to continue to see them make their way out of homelessness for good!
