Israel’s personal social services focus on the weakest and most vulnerable population groups in society.
Their main challenges are to make meaningful contact with population groups in need, to provide them with services tailored to their needs, and to help them extricate themselves from their states of distress and poverty. The recommendations presented in detail below are meant to help craft an array of personal social services that can meet these challenges and help ease the plight of Israel’s distressed population groups.
