The Yad Sarah Family Center performs professional and welcome work in the treatment and prevention of violence in the family. Its uniqueness lies in its specialty of catering to families of the religious sector, but it is open to all sectors of society. Here treatment is provided for the victim, the aggressor and the witness (children from families where violence is prevalent).
Yad Sarah’s staff of therapists consists of 10 social workers, three students studying social work, a female volunteer who is both an attorney as well as a rabbinical court advocate, along with several other volunteers in varying support roles. These volunteers serve as a substitute for the natural support system (family and friends). Because the center specializes in treating the religious sector, a rabbinical committee also participates in its activities.
