ABOUT

Kav L’Noar is a private non-profit social service agency dedicated to working with adolescents and their families who are experiencing emotional and/or behavioral challenges. While serving the general Israeli community, we specialize in the working with Anglo olim.

The services provided are:

1. Individual, marital and family counseling
2. Individual field based youth mentoring
3. School based group mentoring
4. Community education lectures and parenting workshops

Our goals are to reduce stress on the family and relationships within, to empower all family members with the tools and confidence to achieve their potential, and to facilitate positive connections between the child, the parents and the school. We serve children ages 10-18, young adults, and families.

We create a unique treatment plan to meet the specific needs of each family, using both our therapy and our mentoring programs and working with community sources that may impact the lives of the family members. All families requesting our services begin with a thorough assessment evaluation done by one of our trained bilingual masters’ level therapists who are especially sensitive to the needs of the chareidi community. Issues addressed include family discord, ADHD, depression, school dysfunction, poor social skills, all types of abuse, and aliya adjustment.

Mentoring can be a powerful resource for younger children (10-14) and for adolescents who are unwilling to engage in a normative therapeutic relationship. Not all children need therapy, but can benefit from a supportive social relationship with a young adult that will help them develop social skills, build self-confidence, improve self-esteem, learn to express themselves verbally and enhance their integration and social adjustment. Mentoring can be especially impactful as an adjunct to family therapy. Our mentors are carefully screened, trained and supervised by our professional staff.
COSTS: Services are subsidized and fees are assigned according to a sliding scale based on income and number of family members. There is a standard 350sh fee for the assessment, and ongoing therapy is between 100sh and 300sh per session. Mentoring is billed on a monthly basis and costs between 300sh and 960sh per month, which includes meeting twice weekly.
