The Joseph Project

Helping Israelis in Need

Joseph Project
Making a Difference Where Most Needed

While Israel is a modern, technologically-advanced nation, almost 25% of the population (over 1.7 million people including over 900,000 children) live below the poverty line - this is one of the highest rates among all developed nations!
Much of this poverty can be attributed to Israel's high cost of living and low wages, the 24/7 need for border and internal security, and the tens of thousands of immigrants that Israel absorbs each year from diverse regions and cultures, often with no belongings but the clothes on their back, who face significant challenges to adapt in Israel.
Since its establishment in 2000, Joseph Project has distributed over $100 million in humanitarian aid to Israel's neediest populations, including Holocaust survivors, handicapped persons, impoverished individuals and families, victims of terror, IDF soldiers, single-parent families, homeless, recovery centers, orphans, and more; bringing hope and relief to thousands.

Making an Impact in the Nation of Israel

Our Logistics Center is strategically located in the heart of the country, adjacent to highways connecting Israel's southern and northern-most points, allowing our logistics team the ability to offer relief on a nation-wide scale, and making our warehouse uniquely equipped to provide humanitarian aid during times of national crisis.
Working closely with a growing network of independent relief centers, as well as private and government organizations, Joseph Project provides basic life necessities such as clothing, furniture, medical supplies, diapers, food, blankets, toys, household goods, and more - allowing our recipients the ability to live a dignified life despite their trying circumstances, and receive tangible encouragement that they are not alone.
​ As a 3rd Party Logistics Center and non-governmental organization, we serve as a logistics hub helping and connecting business corporations who would donate surplus goods for example, government institutions, whether welfare agencies or seized goods for example, and other nonprofit organizations, creating an ecological system of sustainability to channel goods to those in need.
​ We work as a nonprofit with other nonprofits, to be more efficient and effective - we deliver the goods, and partner organizations monitor the people on the receiving end and report back to us. Our network of nonprofit organizations and social workers grows constantly, and we learn from each other, how to operate better, what the needs are, and how to make a difference in and as Israel.

Joseph Project's Partners



Chief Executive Officer

As a hub for social start-ups, we at Eretz-Ir love to cooperate with Joseph Project on a national-scale to bring goods to several organizations, and our developing a joint project together called Social Delivery. This operation is based on the shared value of sustainability. This is a high impact project that will change society.



Israel Flying Aid
Chief Executive Officer

In 2016 IFA approached the Joseph Project confidentially for a historic assistance operation from the citizens of Israel to the citizens of Syria, through the Golan Heights, with the help of the IDF. They understood the significance of saving lives of innocents, including women and children, in the horrible war just across the border, and understood that the assistance to the Syrians would directly strengthen the state of Israel. The intense assistance constituted transport of hundreds of tons of critical supplies, building a hospital, equipment for handicapped persons, dried foods, warm clothing, baby products, and more.



Helping Hands Coalition
Chief Executive Officer

Helping Hand Coalition is privileged to be partnering with Joseph Project in providing humanitarian aid to the Holocaust survivors and other populations in need in Israel. We are grateful for the humanitarian supplies that are being able to be shipped through Joseph Project and appreciative of their efforts and commitment in delivering them to the people who truly need it the most in the Land.
