House of Victory is Israel’s first Bible-based residential rehabilitation center for men with backgrounds of substance abuse. At the House, the men go through a recovery therapy while also being introduced to the Gospel. As they encounter the truth of salvation in Yeshua through the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, their lives are completely transformed. Leaving hopelessness and despair behind, they build fruitful lives filled with peace and joy. The home has also become a place of reconciliation, as Jews and Arabs learn to live together and experience forgiveness of Yeshua.
