"Warm House" is one of the main projects of the Hand in Hand Association.

Each warm home is designed for about 25 high-risk children aged 3-7, who come from distressed families (drugs, delinquency, mental illness, etc.) and are recognized by welfare services. Warm House operates year-round, after hours following the end of kindergarten and school day activities, until 6 p.m., and from there the children go home to sleep.

This framework provides: shuttles and hot meals (which the children do not enjoy at home), enrichment activities, study help, instilling normative habits, computer knowledge, therapy and emotional support and lots of warmth and love. This gives these children another opportunity for a better life by reducing their exposure to street influences.

`Yad BeYad'' (Hand in Hand) is a charity non-profit organization established in 1982 by Mrs. Shelly Hoshen, who serves as its president.

The ``Bait Ham'' (a Warm Home) project is one of the projects initiated by Yad beYad, to help needy children. These children come from dysfunctional families were the parents are not able to provide them with basic needs. Many of these children have a Mom or Dad who is serving jail time, or who is a serious drug addict. The children are abused, neglected, needy and hungry.

Every day, in these warm homes, these children are given hot, nutritious meals, psychological and sociological counseling and general loving and tender care by a team of professionals and community volunteers.

Thus far over 10 homes, each hosting about 25 children aged 3-7, have been established in Tel-Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, Netanya, Yavne, Hod Hasharon, Hertzlia and other communities throughout Israel with more planned in the future.

The Israeli community in Silicon Valley has taken upon itself to establish and support one such warm home in Kerem HaTemanim, and to fund it on a permanent basis. As lucky as we are, living in this area of great prosperity during especially fortunate times, we feel it is our duty to give back and help those who are not as fortunate as we are. All it takes is about $350 per month, per child to make them smile again and develop a more positive attitude for the rest of their lives.
