About the project
Green House was a unique drop-in center where parents could learn about the health, psychology and behavior of their children from volunteer psychologists, art therapists, social workers and a pediatrician. The program was based on the Maison Verte project created in Paris in the 1970s by French psychoanalyst Francoise Dolto and replicated throughout Europe. The Jerusalem Green House–the first of its kind in Israel– was established in 1991 in the Katamonin. Beginning in 1998, it was housed at the Leonard & Adele Blumberg Mother & Child Care Center. The Jerusalem Foundation supported the project in that location and in 2002 supported renovations at Green House’s new location at a day care center on Kana’i Hagalil Street in Katamon Gimel. The program later ceased operation.
