Children's Activity Room

Some of the women in need of the services of the Center are young women with small children. In order for these women to participate, there must be some accommodation for children. An activity room will operate during the working hours of the Center and will free the mothers to participate in center activities.
Also, these children need to deal with a lot of fears and changes in their family. Their mother no longer looks the way she did, she feels sick and there is always the fear of the unknown. The Center will provide help for the children as part of the activities in the children's room. There will also be a professional in the field of trauma in children who will work with the kids and with the regular children's room staff..

Jerusalem

Jerusalem of gold, stone and light - home to three of the great monotheistic religions - offers unique opportunities and challenges to the center. Jews from all over the world, secular, religious, and haredi, and Arabs, both Moslem and Christian, inhabit this ancient and modern city. Differences of culture and language must be addressed, while realizing that universal concerns and fears unite them all.

Our building

The first stage in establishing The Center For The Breast Cancer Survivor is finding the proper physical location. The setting must be home-like in look and feel and accessible most of the hours of the day. It must be centrally located so that women can come easily from all parts of the city. At the same time, it should have convenient and free parking. The building will be divided into different spaces configured for the various activities of the center.
