Our Vision: The Paamonim organization strives to achieve a situation in which Israeli families conduct their economic lives with balance, responsibility and integrity, thereby helping to strengthen Israel’s economic and social fabric.
How we Work
Paamonim is a nationwide volunteer organization dedicated to helping families and individuals conduct their household finances with balance, responsibility and integrity, thereby strengthening Israel’s economic and social fabric. With the help of its 2800 volunteers, Paamonim provides a wide range of solutions to thousands of Israeli families and individuals each year through its targeted economic recovery programs, and offers information and tools for the general public interested learning the best methods for managing their household finances.
We assess all incoming requests from families. Each family that turns to us receives a phone call from our intake officers to identify the problem. Whether in severe economic distress, drowning in the never-ending cycle of debts and loans, or requiring an answer to specific questions about budgets, banks, mortgages or pension, families are recommended to one of our niche programs that best solve their needs.

We believe that the sharing of responsibility contributes to the strength of the social and economic fabric and its ability to withstand present and future challenges. The volunteering principle promotes the development of mutual responsibility between individuals and within the community.
Paamonim is an organization that has gained wide public support. This is expressed by the tens of thousands of donors who fund the organization’s activities. In addition, thousands of people volunteer in the organization and promote its activities.
In order to keep Paamonim services adapted to the constantly changing conditions in Israel, the organization implements cutting-edge educational methodologies and new technologies, and encourages innovative, out-of-the-box ideas. The implementation of innovation within the organization’s programs and activities is made possible due to advanced management methods and the fruitful and dynamic relationship between the headquarters and the field.
Research, evaluation and measurement
The organization evaluates its activities frequently, against defined key success factors, and upgrades its performance accordingly. The organization employs quantitative and measurable evaluation tools – specially designed CRM software, questionnaires, surveys, data mining, interviews and observation. The organization maintains ongoing communication with research and academic institutions and researches trends in the field of economic education and its implementation world-wide.
Paamonim cooperates with other organizations in the third sector and with companies and institutions in the business and public sector. The organization also cooperates with local welfare authorities across the country, as well as with other local organizations and associations.
Paamonim documents families’ economic data and monitors their progress in designated and secured CRM software. In order to protect privacy, the data is available only to the economic coach assigned to the applicant and a very small number of other consultants, when necessary.
Transparency and Proper Management
Paamonim is a non-profit organization, which operates according to the principles of proper management. The organization’s documents and financial reports are published on this website and are available to all.
