“I arrived in ‘Magic’ after searching for a long time for a place to volunteer with. The community manager put me together with Betty. When we first met, I could feel there were many walls between us. But with time I could feel Betty was learning to trust me. Today, this trust is an established fact, she knows she is not alone, and that my goal is to help. This is what we do, and we enjoy it too.”
Batya, participant, ACT Tel Aviv:
“When I first arrived at Social Magic I was very skeptical, but a voice inside me said “give it a chance.” In the first meetings I was constantly suspicious, and even had a negative attitude.
“Thanks to my companion’s insistence and perseverance, these worries began to dissipate, and my trust started to gradually build up. Today, because of ‘Social Magic,’ I am able to do things I was previously unable to do.”
Yasser, Participant, ACT Tel-Aviv Jaffa”:
“I joined Magic following a financial and a health crisis. I was first suspicious and dubious. I was surprised when I could very quickly feel the warmth coming from the community and the professional staff, who give themselves completely, each in their own way, to help, support and assist.
“Very soon I felt I was a member of a wide family, which supports and empowers, and will not let anyone of us fall.”
