About Beit Daniella and our Scholarship Fund:
What is Beit Daniella?
A rehabilitative day center for youth struggling with mental health challenges including eating disorders.
Beit Daniella empowers youth with the vital skills to transition back into their families, schools and communities.
Situated in a natural setting with an emphasis on animal-assisted therapy,
Beit Daniella seeks to strengthen the healthy self to meet and negotiate with the unhealthy self in an environment that fosters responsibility and wellness.
Appreciating the central role of family, Beit Daniella empowers parents to understand and support their child during this time of need,
while providing the parents themselves with much needed support and the necessary tools to help themselves in dealing with the challenge.
What is the connection between Beit Daniella and running in a Marathon?
There is a direct link between our vision at Beit Daniella and running in the Marathon that can be encapsulated in one word: Empowerment
In the words of Beatie Deutsch, Israel’s Women’s Marathon Champion and #TEAMDANIELLA’s Team Leader,
“Running in general and running marathons, particularly at the late stage when I started, taught me that there are incredible powers within a person that we are totally unaware of. “
What are YOU and the marathon campaign doing for Beit Daniella?
On average, youth attending Beit Daniella stay between 4 to 8 months.
Mental health care is extremely expensive.
The cost per child per month is around 15,000, bringing the average stay at Beit Daniella in the area of 100,000 NIS per child.
As such, since Beit Daniella’s inception, we have been working tirelessly towards the goal of government funding.
In 2021, we succeeded for the first time in mobilizing modest budgets - through the Education Ministry and Social Security Institute Funds.
Even though parents' fees cover a very small percentage of our actual costs, parents still have to pay thousands of shekels towards their child’s care.
Not all families can afford that.
With your help, we would like to establish a scholarship fund to enable youth whose families cannot afford the fees to get the help that they need at Beit Daniella.
They need your donation today.
