    The Story

    Every day, ALEH’s dedicated staff and volunteers tend to the beautiful flowers in their garden – the breathtaking blossoms of the disabled community – taking great care to provide each one with the special attention and nutrients required for continued growth. Through their work at ALEH facilities across Israel, our community of “gardeners” helps severely disabled children reach their greatest potentials.

    Though ALEH has developed a beautiful community for the residents in their care, they never lose sight of the fact that each child is part of a separate family unit, an integral branch on his/her own family tree. In this vein, ALEH works diligently to enhance the family relationships of all residents, helping them stay firmly rooted in their familial framework even though they don’t live under the same roof as their parents and siblings. ALEH’s ‘Family Support Program’ fosters love, acceptance, understanding, comfort and hope between ALEH residents and their families.

    Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are among the best opportunities for families to bond and create memories. As such, ALEH Jerusalem’s current family support programming is focused on helping residents bond with their siblings during their Bar/Bat Mitzvah year. Over the course of the year, residents who are becoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah and their siblings enjoy special activities and trips designed to strengthen their connections and broaden their relationships. The year culminates with a joyous Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration that puts the residents and their siblings in the spotlight

    Message Printed By The Heart

    ALEH was established in 1982 by a group of parents determined to give their severely disabled children the best available care and the opportunity to develop to their fullest potentials. These parents rented an apartment, hired a special education teacher and solicited a group of dedicated volunteers to assist them in realizing their goal. Their innovative approach and steadfast commitment has since changed the face of rehabilitative care in Israel. Today, ALEH is Israel’s largest network of residential facilities for children with severe physical and cognitive disabilities. Approximately 650 children throughout the country receive state-of-the-art medical, educational and rehabilitative care in four facilities: Jerusalem, Gedera, Bnei Brak and the Negev. In addition, ALEH provides over 18,000 outpatient sessions to children with milder disabilities. Thanks to ALEH, these children are able to live in much the same way as non-disabled children: attending school, participating in vocational training programs and enjoying activities such as swimming at the beach or touring the countryside. Integration programs involving family, volunteers, school children and IDF soldiers promote acceptance of the disabled within the community at large. At the heart of ALEH’s success is the intensely personal relationship that develops between caregivers and the amazing children they care for. ALEH’s 700 staff members and 250 volunteers develop a bond with the children that goes well beyond clinical care. As a result, the children of ALEH are developing far beyond the boundaries of their initial prognoses. ALEH's great successes continue to prove that within every child lies the seed of hope and potential, and a spirit that can communicate, learn, and enjoy friendship, laughter and love. ALEH: Caring for Israel’s Disabled, Together ALEH is their home and their family – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. www.ALEH.org
