When the Jerusalem Municipality carried out a search for a professional organization to provide financial workshops and counseling for families in the city, Mesila was the natural choice. Mesila has won the tender for the northern Jerusalem region, which encompasses some 200,000 residents of Neve Yaakov, Pisgat Zeev, Ramat Shlomo, Bukharim and Geula, as well as other neighborhoods. We will soon launch financial empowerment workshops that will be open to the public and encompass an element of individual coaching as well. Special attention will be given to families currently receiving welfare support. Mesila’s family counseling has been proven to help families improve their economic situation by some NIS 2,000-3,000 per month – a difference of over $9,000 per year!
