Misheli – Our Vision
Our goal is to become a national program that guides and supports Lone Soldiers after they complete their army service.
Misheli will help these young men and women overcome difficulties as they transition to become civilians and become part of the Israeli society.
We will help them overcome any obstacles they have in their daily lives as well as provide guidance and support as they build their professional and family future in Israel.
There are a number of organizations which are tasked with helping Lone Soldiers even after they complete their national service. The problem is, each organization works differently and this creates confusion.
These soldiers have no idea of which organization is supposed to provide which assistance and to whom.
Each soldier is on his or her own to navigate this bureaucratic chaos.
The end result is that many deserving Lone Soldiers fail to get the assistance they deserve.
Worse, after giving all they could to serve Israel, they are left feeling helpless and powerless and don’t know where to turn.
Usually, once they complete their army service, they end up in an empty apartment with almost no financial resources and no way to furnish their own rooms.
Those lucky enough to have furniture usually can’t afford the cost of having it moved to their new apartment so the end result is the same – an empty, cold place to stay.
It’s no wonder why so many Lone Soldiers post-service find themselves in an impossible bureaucratic stalemate without any feeling of belonging or even being wanted.
Our first action is to meet with the discharged Lone Soldier to determine what help they need. Then, we personally connect the Lone Soldier with the appropriate governmental and non-governmental agency or organization and make sure they get the help they need and deserve.
We have also created national logistic centers that provide these recently released soldiers with equipment and furniture to furnish their new homes. As such, we:
- Maintain various warehouses to store donated furniture and equipment.
- Try to expand our network of private businesses and organizations that help support our soldiers as much as possible.
- Enlist the help of professional movers to transport the furniture and equipment for the soldiers.
- Reach out to grow the number of volunteers that meet with these young men and women to make sure their needs are being addressed.
- Search for financial contributors so that we can continue to provide these vital services for these most deserving young people.
