The Jerusalem Shelter for Women

Established in 1978, Woman to Woman is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence. The organization houses abused women and their children in its Jerusalem shelter and closely supports them throughout their rehabilitation, providing free legal aid, halfway housing and continued assistance once victims are ready to live on their own. The shelter can accommodate up to 15 women and 30 children at a time and about 70 women and 140 children pass through its doors every year. It is open to women from all walks of life, from teenagers to senior citizens, religious and secular Jews to Christian and Muslim Arabs, and new immigrants to veteran Israelis, who are referred to the organization by social welfare authorities, hospitals or the police. Woman to Woman is funded in part by the Israel Ministry of Social Affairs and relies on donations and volunteer work for the rest. Anatta is proud to support it in its life-saving work.
