What services does Kav L’Noar center have to offer?
The Kav L’Noar building is centrally located on Keren Hayisod street; an easy to reach counseling center for struggling teens and their families. Their team provides a full intake of the families requesting services and then supplies a heavily subsidized program comprised of holistic, counseling, and one on one mentoring for each child.
Before the inception of Kav L’Noar, families that made aliyah with children who weren’t able to adjust emotionally, often felt there was no where to turn. With funds generated from the Marathon Kav L’noar can continue to provide families with support and tools when they need them the most!
