What we do

What we do

The Spafford Children’s Center takes a holistic approach to child health and empowerment by providing psychological, social, and educational support in East Jerusalem for children who live under difficult socio-economic conditions.

Our services include tutoring in Arabic, English, and mathematics to help children with learning delays and psychological challenges learn and succeed. Combined with a psycho-social empowerment program, the Spafford Children’s Center serves 450-500 traumatized children each year who have been impacted by the political violence in the area of East Jerusalem. The children are provided with remedial education, speech therapy, play therapy, and other psycho-social empowerment activities that enhance the children’s well-being and development in a structured and protective framework. To ensure a holistic approach, SCC works with mothers to offer them counseling and training in areas of their interests and needs.
