Foster Care

DID YOU KNOW that there tens of thousands of homeless Jewish children living on the streets in the Former Soviet Union?

In the FSU, the economic crisis has caused many unemployed parents to become alcoholics and drug users who end up in prisons or mental institutions. As a result, the children are neglected and end up living on the streets, becoming criminals, beggars or prostitutes rather than learning in school and living in a safe, secure home. In response to this tragedy, Chabad has built and runs 12 children’s homes currently providing a safe environment for thousands of precious children.

Chabad's foster care orphanages, entirely staffed by certified professionals, provide shelter and:
Caring house parents who offer love and supervision
Psychological counseling
Medical and dental treatments
Three nutritious and balanced meals daily
Clothing and personal toiletries
Clean and modern bedrooms and bathrooms
Books and games
Field trips and cultural enrichment opportunities

During the school year, children are enrolled in schools and during the summer break children attend day or sleep-away camps, where they swim, make arts and crafts projects and enjoy outdoor activities.

Chabad-Lubavitch takes a proactive role in saving children from the horrors of the streets. Specially trained teams of social workers take to the streets on night patrol, with food, information and an open invitation to live in a safe and caring environment.
