VOLUNTEER EMPOWERMENT

Want to offer real and lasting hope to those in need?

Looking for personal growth and an opportunity to give back to the community? Join our meaningful and life-changing volunteer initiative.

Thousands of seniors and those in high risk groups are being reached out to through compassionate calls made by volunteers of the Hope Responders Volunteer Hotline which was born at the height of the Covid-19 crisis in order to address those who may have been forgotten and face isolation and  loneliness.

Our “Hope Responders” project has so far recruited, trained, and connected over 700 volunteers to thousands of seniors in need to provide comfort, care, connectivity and hopefulness throughout these lonely times, in spite of physical distance. Our volunteers are all ages, from across the country, and with various backgrounds. They dedicate their time to hold meaningful conversations with seniors in need about their family, life and fears, as well as worries amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

This Life’s Door initiative has attracted major companies in Israel to provide their employees with an option to connect to seniors in need, and to support their communities, which they can do during work hours. Companies like Coca-Cola, Salesforce, Kornit Digital and Amnir have joined our existing volunteer force of healthcare professionals, students, and olim (new immigrants).

If you would like to volunteer, we invite you to contact us. We will connect you with those who need hope and a listening ear and hope, so we can help them through these hard times.

A specialized training for Russian speaking volunteers to reach out to the Russian speaking elderly living in public housing who are battling with loneliness has been launched in collaboration with Matav Association for the Elderly and with the generous support of Bituah Leumi- The Israel Social Welfare Institute.
