What is Someone to Run With?
Operating since 2002, Someone to Run With – Mishehu Larutz I’to is a drop-in center that provides emotional support, medical care, medical supplies, hot meals, warm clothing and showers to homeless young adults. 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. In cases where there is motivation for change, the young adults are offered the opportunity to take part in a long term rehabilitative, therapeutic process. We have expanded our drop-in centers and shelters for homeless youth this year. In Tel Aviv, we expanded services at “Someone to Run With”, becoming the first 24/7 shelter for homeless young men.
