The disengagement from Gush Katif and Northern Samaria in 2005 broke up tight-knit communities, scattering them across the country, challenging the stability of families and placing their children at risk. JobKatif is the only organization dedicated to helping these former residents of Gush Katif and Northern Samaria find employment, set up businesses and return to economic stability. The organization believes that given the right support, every Gush Katif evacuee can once again be a financially self sufficient, contributing member of Israeli society.
JobKatif utilizes one-of-a-kind techniques and works one on one with the evacuees. They work in their homes and aim to find a solution that will work for the whole family. JobKatif is now officially recognized by the Prime Minister’s Office of the State of Israel as being the only entity successfully placing the displaced job-seekers back into the Israeli workforce.
