About Us: Who We Are And What We Do

Yad Sarah's Mission

plantBringing help and hope to the people of Israel.

Yad Sarah is Israel’s largest volunteer-staffed organization, providing a wide array of compassionate health and home care services for people of all ages, with special programs directed at support for older adults and for children and adults with disabilities.

Yad Sarah’s free services are delivered by over 6,000 volunteers in more than 100 branches across Israel, and bring help – and hope - to more than 420,000 people in need each year, among them the frail elderly, the homebound, victims of terror and domestic abuse, and children and adults with special needs.

Each year, the organization’s professional staff and devoted volunteers lend out hundreds of thousands of items such as wheelchairs, crutches, and oxygen machines; drive the sick and injured to medical appointments; help disabled people regain their independence through therapeutic programming at the Day Rehabilitation Centers; staff an emergency home alarm center with thousands of subscribers; providing free legal aid to thousands of at-risk elderly through the Yad Riva Legal Services program; offer after-school programming and parental guidance for families with children with disabilities; extend therapeutic support for couples and families coping with domestic violence; and offer free dental care to older adults living in poverty.
