our mission

Our mission is to provide a holistic continuum of medical, psychological, social and cultural services to children and families in need, regardless of race, religion or cultural background.

Opportunities for all

The Spafford Children’s Center is still guided by the humanitarian values on which it was founded. We continue to hope for a time of peace, health and opportunity for all people in the Holy Land.

The staff, Board of Trustees and all connected with the Spafford Children’s Center are guided by the following principles:

  • We build on the vision and dedication of the founding families who began serving needy children in the early 20th century
  • We offer culturally sensitive professional services to the under-served population in East Jerusalem and the West Bank
  • We strive to help children reach their full potential through development of their individual strengths and gifts

In recognition of the unpredictable political situation in the area, the Spafford Children’s Center must be able to react quickly to deliver services to children and families in need.

To continue to be a vital resource for children and families the Spafford Children’s Center maintains a strong fiscal and organisational presence.
