SMART Chesed Services
Bet Shemesh is among the lowest socioeconomic status cities in the country (a ranking of 2/10). Due to underemployment, immigration, single parenthood, and a growing culture of poverty, traditional approaches by Chesed organizations fail to address the root problems of poverty. While helping, they cannot reverse the relentless cycle of generational poverty.Our multidisciplinary case management team of social workers, financial planners, employment counselors and therapists address underlying personal challenges, client debt reduction and immediate revenue increase within a collaborative, customized approach to each client’s situation. Each client family is escorted through their tailored strategic plan through their unique multi-year process.
