Establishing a Supportive Community for those with Special Needs for Residents of Kiryat Haim

Whereas in the past most people with special needs were relegated to institutions or other facilities outside of their homes and families, recent trends have moved towards enabling those with physical and mental handicaps to remain in their homes with the support and assistance of family members. However as parents age and siblings move away with their own families, many are faced with the necessity of leaving the home they have known and moving to a facility in which they can be cared for. Often all it takes for these individuals to remain in their homes is some community support. We seek to supplement the dwindling family support with the services of our Supportive Community. This program supports independent living of individuals with disabilities enabling them to remain in their homes by providing a variety of services that contribute to improving security and quality of life.
