The uniqueness of Sahar

Sahar is an Israeli non-profit organization operating since 2000 and offering free online support for people experiencing emotional distress and suicidal ideation. Sahar is the sole organization in Israel that specializes exclusively in online support for both mental health and emotional wellbeing.

Collaborating closely with law enforcement and national emergency agencies, we are considered an essential addition to formal mental health services.

We provide services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in Hebrew and Arabic, through a dedicated team of 250 qualified crisis volunteers, supervised by mental health professionals, who help hundreds of 
people daily.

Sahar also operates dedicated support forums, email support and a pioneering Online Outreach Patrol - where our volunteers actively monitor and detect distress messages across social media and engage in crisis intervention, de-escalation and 
suicide prevention.

Warm words from our applicants

"I feel less stress and anxiety now that we are talking"
"I'm still worried But I let it all out for a while. I'm alive and breathing and that's what matters. I feel some hope"
"You’ve really helped me out, given me faith, hope, and a sense of companionship. I hope that you will help many more people like you helped me"

Volunteer Based NPO

Since October 7th, our remarkable team of volunteer crisis counselors and shift supervisors has been tirelessly manning our chat hotlines in Hebrew and in Arabic, operating at unprecedented levels to provide vital support to Israeli citizens experiencing acute emotional distress.

All volunteers are trained experts in text-mediated counseling and crisis intervention, focusing on delivering emotional support during stressful and traumatic events. 

Looking ahead, we anticipate that call volumes will continue to soar as more and more Israelis reach out for help in the aftermath of the brutal attack on Israel and the ongoing war. 

Your support is crucial in enabling us to meet the rising demand and provide immediate and effective response to those in need.
