Turning a private crisis into an opportunity for community outreach

the family HUG - named after Modi Enav z "l

The Family HUG
for structured assistance

  • The diamond shape best describes the model of the enveloping of the patient by his family and also of the volunteer. At this stage, the Yad Tamar Team is involved – professionals  giving advice, organizations which can help out…and more.
  • The interior area of the diamond describes  the work of the volunteers directly with the patient and his family. The model demonstrates the structured combination of the coping abilities of the patient and his family,  together  with the amount of on-hand assistance given by the volunteer.  The higher the ability of the patient to cope – the assistance offered is more focused and more short-term.

The community HUG:
Smart management for community resilience

The Need: 
In each community, there is a clear need to connect between the needs and abilities of the family at hand with the help available from the community. Most of the communities are looking for an easy and effective way to manage crisis within their communities in a way that will also strengthen the community.

A Distinctive Program:

The Tamar Community Model was developed by experts in the Yad Tamar organization and offers communities dealing with a crisis the following tools:

  • Efficacy – serving as a bridge between the community and the family and prioritizing tasks based on needs of the family and the strengths of the volunteers

  • More Volunteers – who are able to actualize their strengths

  • Comprehensive array of help

  • The ability to provide a longitudinal vision and plan of aid for the family, where the support continues after the initial crisis has passed. 

  • Creatively using “smart help” programs
