Today, your gift to ELEM/Youth in Distress in Israel is of critical importance to the youth we serve. They face tremendous challenges, such as: domestic violence, substance abuse, neglect, bullying, homelessness and prostitution. ELEM works with native-born secular and religious Jews; Christian and Muslim Arabs including Bedouins; immigrants, including those from the Former Soviet Union and Ethiopia; and the LGBT community. Many live on the streets and most will not seek help from traditional social service groups. ELEM’s 280 professionals and over 1,700 volunteers don’t wait for referrals to treat these struggling youth, but seek them out on their turf — on the streets, in schools, on the Internet and at bars and nightclubs. Our 78 programs in 43 cities provide counseling, mentoring, vocational training and a safe space for Israeli youth to envision a positive future for themselves and become productive members of Israeli society.
