We would like to express our deepest gratitude for your support and commitment to Adopt a Family Foundation, even more so during this unprecedented and challenging time. Thanks to your dedication we have been able to bring light to our adopted families and support valuable programs.
This past year…
We hosted a Spring Boutique outdoors in the garden of Chabad RSF.
What an amazing day we had! The day was a great success thanks to all who came together to support us and to our outstanding vendors! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
We responded to the impact of the war in May with additional financial support to all our adopted families. Each of them received a check of $500.00.
We maintained our financial support for our families for the Holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Passover.
We offered three scholarships of $1,500.00 each to allow the children of our adopted to pursue their studies.
Against all odds, we were able to provide the ladies of our adopted families a beautiful gathering in artist Shosh Segev’s Sha’ar Hanegev studio, with an evening of connection, creativity and relaxation.
We have been able to sponsor cycling therapy for 15 teens from Sderot.
This specific therapy helps teens suffering from PTSD to work as a team in open space. The program has proven itself to help them gain a feeling of security in open space as well as create social connections. It allows them to get back into society with confidence and move away from their feelings of fear, insecurity, and loneliness.
We planned the launch of a new interest-free microlending program to help our adopted families create or improve their businesses.
We sponsored a week-long trip to San Diego for our remarkable Gala guest speaker, Benjamin Horgen and two of his children, who gave a heartfelt speech in memory of his wife Esther z"l.
On December 20, 2020, Esther Horgen, 52, a mother of six, was tragically murdered by a terrorist while hiking in the Reihan forest, near her home.
To listen to Benjamin’s speech:
Adopt a Family Foundation held its Gala on August 29, 2021.
Guests enjoyed an evening held completely outdoors, with a moving program and a beautiful musical entertainment by Shanee Zamir Omér. The event was co-chaired by Patrice Gold and Kimberly Raoufpur. Adopt a Family Foundation was honored to have Benjamin Horgen as their guest speaker.
The guests also had the opportunity to bid on beautiful art pieces generously donated by artists from our community.
We are grateful to each and every one of you who made this evening a true success!
We are hoping that 2022 will allow us to go visit our adopted families in Israel…
Thank you for your continuous support and generosity in making our work possible.
May 2022 bless you with health, success and happiness.
