Emergency Programs

ITEC is one of the largest social service organizations in Israel, with 24 locations throughout the country, several of which are serving communities in the South that are deeply impacted by the recent attacks. Through the infrastructure we have built over the last 46 years, we have been able to take immediate action to help our children and their families who are going through unimaginable times.
