Olamot's operating budget runs to roughly to $820,000 per year, for all its three facilities. (Our high school is budgeted separately, financed by the Ministry of Education.)
Of this only some $100,000 (13%) comes from fees paid by the girls’s families. The remainder must be raised independently.
The cost of enrolling a young woman in one of Olamot’s program for a year runs between $14,000 (for the halfway house) to $17,800 (for the treatment facility), with tenure in the dormitory costing $16,200 for one girl for an entire year.
Without the support of its friends and supporters, Olamot would be unable to provide its services.
