Sheltered Housing


Sheltered Housing

Ohrlenefesh also has independent living units; each one houses 3 - 4 individuals. While there are no staff members who sleep in the apartments, Ohrlenefesh staff members are available 24 hours a day. Due to the need for intensive support and supervision, daily visits are provided from a counselor, in addition to visits twice a week from a social worker. Furthermore group therapy is given once a week in each house.

Houses are located in residential areas of Jerusalem and provide a secure, therapeutic, and rehabilitative environment. Work opportunities also encourage interaction with society at a level that is manageable and comfortable for each individual. Ohrlenefesh acts as a liaison with the client and his/her work placement employers.
