Denny and Liliana McDermott are founders of Jacob’s Ladder. Their passion is to reach out to those who are needy, hurting and in need of hope. They have been doing this kind of work throughout California, Latin America and Israel since 2001. For over 10 years, they have been reaching families affected with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), due to Hamas rocket attacks, in the hardest-hit areas of Southern Israel. Hamas terrorists breached these same areas next to the Gaza Strip, on October 7, 2024.

Along with our partners in these cities, the McDermott’s have been able to provide most important humanitarian aid, and have co-ordinated the installation of needed bomb shelters in vulnerable areas. The Oct.7th Hamas attacks have intensified the need for more help!
