Volunteer

THIS IS HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Please join our volunteers and provide meaningful support
to Holocaust survivors all over Israel, while benefitting
from the opportunity to hear their life stories and share
their legacy with future generations.
Amcha volunteers are engaged in weekly home visits with homebound
survivors, and/or in our rich program of activities at Amcha's network of
psychosocial clubs.
Amcha volunteers are all carefully selected and supervised by our staff, after
completing a training and orientation program. Volunteers are asked to make
a time commitment of one hour a week, for a period of at least one year.
For additional information please contact the Amcha branch nearest to you.

Mental health care

AMCHA has become a worldwide leader in developing psychosocial support for Holocaust traumatization, including its long-term influence and delayed onset reactions. Professional counseling is offered to individuals, couples, families, and groups to help cope with anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement and more.

 

Care for homebound survivors

AMCHA reaches out and responds to the critical needs of homebound survivors whose illness or disability prevents them from coming to our centers. AMCHA has created a special team of therapists who provide this much needed care and support.

 

Psychosocial Support Clubs

Led by experienced social workers, AMCHA's psychosocial clubs operate all over Israel and serve as a most significant source of support, combating depression and social isolation. The elderly survivors benefit from a wide array of programs which enrich their lives, develop their creative abilities, and help them cope with inherent challenges of old age and traumatic Holocaust memories. Special programs connect survivors with young people, enabling the first generation to share their legacy with the generations that followed. The clubs are often referred to by our members as their "second home" or simply "family".

 

AMCHA Volunteer Home Visits

Hundreds of carefully selected and supervised volunteers visit home-bound survivors on a regular basis. Their ages, professions and cultural backgrounds are as diverse as Israel's society. They all share a genuine desire to get to know the survivors, share their legacies, and offer meaningful support and a connection to the community.
