Some 360,000 children in Israel live in at-risk situations of various kinds. Since its establishment a decade ago, Ashalim has striven to shape the way that the public and decision makers perceive the needs of children and youth at risk and the way in which Israeli society and the service system respond to them. This publication assesses the first decade of Ashalim - a partnership between JDC-Israel, the government of Israel, and the UJA-Federation of New York. It examines the programs that Ashalim has developed over the years, new professional approaches, the impact of the organization's work on the service system, and the challenges facing it in the future.
