Since the founding of WIZO, the subject of motherhood has always been at the forefront of what we do. Today, motherhood is no less challenging and WIZO is adapting to mothers’ needs: support groups for single mothers, promoting mothers’ rights in the work place, creating networks of support during times of crisis, providing training for financial independence.

Domestic Violence

WIZO is a leader in the field of domestic violence in Israel. We operate two shelters for women victims of violence and their children; a program across the country that helps them rebuild and lead independent and violence-free lives; centers for the prevention of violence where families come for treatment while staying together; a youth program that aims to teach youth healthy relationships to prevent violence; and a help line for violent men seeking assistance.
