Selected Projects:

The Haruv Children's Campus The Haruv Children’s Campus is a unique and innovative initiative, the first of its kind in the world, whose goal is to create university-linked services for abused children. The campus brings together under one roof a variety of services for abused and neglected children. This initiative is led by the Haruv Institute in association with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and through the generous support of the Schusterman-Israel Foundation (SFI) and the JDC –Israel. The campus will encourage mutual cooperation between the various services for maltreated children. Both clinical and therapeutic services will operate on campus, including child advocacy services, a range of training programs for students of the behavioral sciences and medicine and accompanying research from the Hebrew University. The campus will facilitate synergy between the various services, will increase the individual contribution of each of the partners, creating a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
