Shevet Achim is not only a non-profit organization, but also a community of people from diverse backgrounds that live and work together in the same building - 29 Prophets Street, Jerusalem. Our volunteer staff shares living space, work assignments, meals, and daily prayer and scripture study. Living in community gives us daily opportunity to learn how to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.
The children and parents who have turned to the hospitals of Israel for live-saving treatment also reside at 29 Prophets Street. The spacious upstairs of our building is their home while in Israel, with sleeping quarters, a large kitchen, dining room, and recreation room. As volunteers, children, and parents all live together in the same building, the hope is to see the promise of Shevet Achim - meaning "brothers dwelling together" in Hebrew - to see this promise blossom inside the walls of our home.
