Social – Utilization of Rights

The utilization of rights is facilitated by three departments:

  1. Centers for Utilization of Rights – the centers provides our aid-recipients with information, guidance and direction on diverse topics: social security, housing, health, handling debts and employee rights.
  2. Legal Assistance Department
  3. Policy Department that works to change the overall policy on a national level.


מרכז סיוע
A Humanitarian Umbrella Organization

The Pitchon Lev organization provides direct  assistance to 250,000 Israelis every year.

The recipients receive aid in food, baby food, household utensils, clothing, footwear, electrical appliances, legal and medical advice and hairdressing services.

Pitchon Lev works to enable a dignified life for those who need a platform to exit from poverty to those who can.

The recipients of the aid are referred to us through letters of referral from social workers from all over the country. Any request for help, even without a referral from a social worker, receives immediate attention, without unnecessary bureaucracy. Already on the day of referral, we immediately assist in the distribution of food basket and clothing details required, and only then the recipient is asked to furnish a referral from a social worker.

The organization has always wished to be in direct contact with the recipients of the aid and to maintain dialogue with them without mediation in the middle. Thanks to this, we are able to adapt to new situations and to adapt immediate solutions to the needs that arise from the field.

Assistance to the needy in the aid centers is carried out on several levels :

Program 7

Program 7 of the educational project “Lagaat Ba’Oqek” from Pitchon-Lev, which has been in operation since 2004, is intended for youth from the geographic and social periphery who have the will and talent and need support in order to realize them.

The program operates within the framework of formal school hours and with the approval of the Ministry of Education. The program is an empowerment program based on the cognitive-behavioral approach, which provides youth with the tools they need to develop as adults who benefit themselves and society, while developing the natural resources inherent in them.

Tavor Program

In the educational system, there are classrooms that are designed to achieve specific goals set by the school staff, which for reasons that are not educational, the students fail to meet the goals that were defined for them. This is exactly where the “Tavor program” helps emotionally and socially enables students to return to the track of success and achievement.

The “Tavor Program” is a one-year focused, short-term empowerment program aimed at enabling a large number of youth to experience a process of change by developing positive thinking patterns about themselves and their surroundings.    The program enables the teens to experience powerful success experiences, which are very important for their continued success in life.

Strategic Range

Pitchon Lev is a national humanitarian umbrella organization assisting over 42 non-profit organizations nationwide and different Israeli charities. We help soup kitchens, senior citizen centers, yeshivas, shelters for battered women, orphanages, shelters for teens at risk, regional councils, municipalities, and dozens of organizations distributing food to thousands of needy people throughout Israel. We accomplish this thanks to the volunteers who work at the aid centers and allow us to offer our help at a national level.

The other important mean of strategic influence is by lobbying the establishment to act on behalf of the needy in Israel.

Pitchon Lev’s Recycling Center

Every month over 60 tons of worn out clothing is donated to the poor through Pitchon Lev’s two humanitarian aid centers in Carmiel and in Rishon Letzion. Worn out clothing constitutes 6% of the household waste and does not decompose. 

In January 2012, the Pitchon Lev Recycling Center was established in the Pitchon Lev Aid Center in Carmiel. After a careful selection, the clothing is sold to the needy at very cheap cost in the aid centers. The clothing that is unsuitable is cut into rags and sold to industries.
 2.2 pounds of clothes is worth one Israeli shekel , when 2.2 pounds of cut rags is worth 4 Israeli shekels.
The rationale is that we will generate  an independent income where the profits from the sale of the cut rags goes to help the needy through the activities of Pitchon Lev, the factories receive cheap rags and we promote the protection of the environment by saving water and causing a decrease in waste.
This is a win-win situation-you help the needy by enabling Pitchon Lev to recycle your old clothes and you are showing environmental responsibility.
Donate food parcels!
Your donation to Pitchon-Lev is a tax-deductible 501(c)(3) extent allowed by law.
