“Entitlement Centers” Personal Consulting in the community:
Over the years our organization Aviv for Holocaust Survivors has advised thousands of Survivors and their families all over Israel. From our experience and considerable fieldwork we have discovered that “wise” and speedy realization of rights is achieved when the advice is personal and accessible to the Survivor. Accordingly, Aviv for Holocaust Survivors collaborated with Eshel Joint Israel to initiate a joint Project – the establishment of “Entitlement Centers” – in the Community.
The aim and uniqueness of this project is to give ongoing personal advice to Holocaust Survivors within their own communities until their rights are fully realized. This is the first time that a service of such high quality and scope is made available to the Survivor population.
A specialist Lawyer on behalf of Aviv for Holocaust Survivors, receives the public at set and regular times in the offices of the Local Authority and assists Survivors who approach them on an ongoing basis until the successful completion of the process. The Advisor has professional knowledge and wide experience and is updated with the latest legislations. The advice and guidance is given face to face and free of charge. Survivors follows up on the advice given to ensure that the Survivor receives complete answers and all the rights due to him by law.
There are 18 Centers already operating in Ramat Gan, Kfar Saba, Haifa; Acco, Kiryat Yam, Hod Hasharon, Givaatain, Kiryat Ono, Bat Yam, Bnei Brak, Ashdod, Modi'in , Raanna ,Rishon Lezion, Jerusalem, Beer Sheva and Reut Hospital in Tel Aviv who's sponsored by LA Federation. So Far More than 4,500 Holocaust Survivors got assistant in this project and succeeded to achieve rights and benefits they didn't have before.
