Since the birth of this amazing home I've watched as girls came in abused and broken-spirited with no idea where their next bite of food would come from or what they would do with themselves beyond the next 5 minutes. I've witnessed their emotional states so beaten that they find the relief initially too shocking for them to believe. I've seen countless girls rehabilitated through love, care, guidance and enduring patience as bit by bit they piece their lives back together and become functioning, even blossoming, contributing members of society. From the way it's logistics are run from the top, down to the day to day trivialities and everything in between, this organization blows me away again and again. The amount of girls who have at some point called it "home" and how far reaching their achievements have gone is testament to it's phenomenal success. As I have been fortunate enough to have been present at multiple reunions of girls "graduated" coming together, I can honestly say the people involved literally save lives each and every day.
I have visited Rinas Place a few times during my trips to Israel and have always been amazed at the work they do and the professionalism and caring that they do it with. The girls that they help keep off the streets are housed in a beautiful well kept home, fed and given counseling and the help they need to be on their own and become productive members of society once again
Aishel is truly a world class organization. They are there for these girls when no one else is. They provide an amazing support system to help with any issues the girls may have and then provide a support system in which these girls can go on to lead successful and productive lives.
I have personally visited this home and have witnessed the transfomation these girls have made. They come off the streets , unhappy, unloved and feeling overwhelmed and unlucky in life. After going through the Aishel process and therapies, these girls are transformed into happy capable women who see life through a whole different lens.
How grateful we should be that this place is available to those who need it!!!
Aishel is a home that provides a home for girls in need of a place to live.
I have met the founders on numerous occasions and can say that they truly care for every single girl and provide for them as if it was their own child!
Reenas place is a very successful nonprofit with the most talented staff. I have seen their work amoungst other organazations, and am impressed with what they accomplish. I fully recommend Reenas place.
If only there could be a home such as Aishel in every city! Girls who are abused or who feel unsafe have a place they can call home that cares for them with shelter, food, love and professional help. If you visit, you will see girls who are relaxed and comfortable in their surroundings. Not for profit donations go directly to the great expenses of running the home. Good feelings for every dollar donated!!
Reena's place has amazing success and we are honored to support them.
Reenas place saved my life! I was homeless in Israel at 18, everyone else had given up on me, I was lost and alone, never thought I'd ever make it through, I thought this was the end of my life, I am stuck in a deep dark rut that I will never climb out of. And then I moved to Reenas place. The love and care and guidance I received there was unparallel to anything I've ever witnessed anywhere else in the world. I learned to trust, I learned to live, I learned to accept myself for who I am and to use my inner strengths to move on in life. I learned that some people are messed up and crazy and give up on others but j learned that that's not the whole world. I was shown the light and I felt safe. I was given tools, to use as I ventured out into the big world. And I am still using them 5 years later as a healthy functioning adult. Thank you Reenas place for saving my soul!
I'm thrilled to be a regular donor to Aishel. It's wonderful to know that every dollar donated is going to the charity, not to gala events or administrative bonuses. Kol hakavod to all who work so tirelessly for this organization to save and help young women of Israel.
Reena's place does not just welcome a young girl or women and provide a place to sleep. Anyone that enters Aishel/Reenas place discovers the beginning of safe and secure journey. They are given support to overcome their challenges and grow. Many have gone on to college, marriage and families. I am very proud to be a part of Aishel/Reenas Place
