Naming opportunities for capital building projects are an important way to support the important work of Jerusalem Hills. These "bricks and mortar" projects are permanent reminders of the commitment of our major donors and their families to ensuring that every abused or neglected child in our care gets a second chance at life and is reintegrated into normative society.
Project - $1,000,000
The construction of a swimming pool and indoor sports complex is planned for the upper northeastern corner of the campus near the outdoor sports fields and the Junior Unit Residence. This will serve as a recreational and leisure-time facility as well as for rehabilitative and hydrotherapy sessions.
Available for Naming $1,000,000
Our school building is the centerpiece of our campus and an inseparable part of the Children’s Home complex. Each Unit has three classrooms, a main classroom and two smaller classrooms, ensuring that each child has a school program specifically tailored to his/her needs and abilities. In addition to the classroom-based studies, the students receive additional therapy hours provided by professionally trained therapists, such as, music therapy, art therapy and occupational therapy in special therapy classrooms.
One wing is still available for naming - $600,000.
The Kemper Group Home provides an intimate, warm home and therapeutic center for adolescent boys 14-18 years old. The Group Home has been home to approximately 15 youngsters each year, for the past thirty years. Approximately 20% of the boys are graduates of the Children’s Home who need an extended period in residential care before being mainstreamed in normative frameworks. Most of them – close to 70% - are successfully rehabilitated and enlist for their compulsory army service at the age of 18.
Recently we relocated to a facility better suited to our needs which has allowed us to almost double the number of boys (26) we accommodate, treat and rehabilitate. The property has been completely renovated through a generous grant by the Israel National Insurance Fund and is now a state of the art facility.
