The Kemper Group Home operated between 1985 and 2020.
The Kemper Group Home was a residential treatment center for at-risk boys between the ages of 13 and 19. The Group Home was a haven for these boys who suffer from severe emotional and behavioral problems and have been removed from all other treatment frameworks.
For these adolescent boys from all over Israel the Group Home was their anchor – they lived there; they took their meals there; they received an extensive therapeutic program, (all the youngsters at the Group Home received a full and intensive therapy program, with professionals – social workers and psychologists – escorting each lad closely and creating a unique therapy and rehabilitation program to meet his individual needs), as well as a plethora of social activities to promote social interaction. For the boys the Group Home was their residential as well as their treatment center.
The Group Home was also their springboard and, as part of our rehabilitative process, the boys learned to live in a give-and-take relationship with the outside world. In addition to attending school in the greater community, each of the youngsters was encouraged to participate in normative frameworks and interact in an increasing number of junctions with the mainstream.
