Beds for Hadassah and Ya’akov’s children
Ya’akov, 25, and Hadassah, 24, recently moved in order to start their lives with a clean slate. Until now, they had been living in Ya’akov’s mother home, but a family history of violence and crime combined with Yaakov’s mother own schizophrenia, lead the couple to decide to move their family to Dimona and get away from the very real ghosts of the past. The situation became more complicated and urgent when one of Yaakov’s brothers moved in too, after being released from prison.
Ya’akov, Hadassah and their four children (ages 3, 2, 1, and four months) received a public housing unit. Hadassah has been busy with the new baby and is only now going to be able to look for work. Ya’akov too, although he worked in the transportation industry before their move, has not managed to find new work yet. As a result they have been unable to furnish their new home. The only thing in the new apartment is Ya’akov and Hadassah’s bed. They would like their children to have beds too but cannot afford to buy them. Their social worker is optimistic about this family’s desire to create a proper home for their children and has turned to Ten Gav for assistance.
