Support for Families of Children with Disabilities


Based on an MJB planning study, JDC-Ashalim developed a model for family support centers that offer a broad range of support services for families with children with all types of disabilities. This year, MJB is concluding a 5-year evaluation of the model and its expansion into additional cities. The evaluation found that the program has helped provide important information to families about rights and resources, raise awareness of and promote people with disabilities in the community, coordinate therapeutic recreational family activities, and develop support groups, volunteerism and community-based leadership among parents.


There are already 11 centers around the country, with plans to add 4-5 new centers each year, until the project serves the entire country.
