Bringing Israel’s homeless back to society through sports
The association runs a variety of projects: Adult football teams, a team for at-risk youth, a women's choir and the "Place" project - street lockers.
"On the field we are all equal, the team and the players. Everyone on the field is normative. "

Home Base is a non-profit organisation, offering a different approach for rehabilitation treatments for the homeless. Using team dynamics as a therapeutic tool, Home Base nurtures personal connections with the excluded homeless population.
We give the homeless population in Israel the opportunity to rehabilitate in a new and holistic model that is a bridge to their return to society.
Men football teams
We use football as a therapeutic tool - it creates meaningful connections between the staff and the participants and thus contributes to their rehabilitation and integration into the community.
The "Halelu" choir was established for women who are facing homelessness, the women meet every week to sing and afterwards sit and eat together.
The project implements the concept of “housing first”model by exercising the housing rights of Jerusalem “street dwellers” and helping those unfamiliar ones to get recognition and their rights. The locker is a humane solution required for the time needed to build trust and break through bureaucratic obstacles.
