Building Lives in the Community

Belev Raanana is an NPO building a home in Raanana for moderate to low-functioning young adults with intellectual disabilities and/or in need of nursing care.

Belev Raanana is the entrepreneur and manager of the project, from start to finish. The planning of the home was carried out in collaboration with professionals from the field of residential solutions for special populations, in order to provide its residents with optimal care and promote their inclusion in their home community.

The home will be built in Raanana, on land allocated by the Raanana Municipality at 9 Haprachim Street.

The home being built by Belev Raanana is among the first of its kind in Israel: Apartments in the community for young adults with severe disabilities.

Young adults with severe disabilities, and/or in need of nursing care, who in the past would have been excluded from the community and sent to faraway institutions, will now be able to live their whole lives with dignity within their home community.

The entire plan of the residential complex is based on the most advanced professional approaches regarding housing solutions for special populations within the community.  It will include three residential units, and each unit will be run independently, providing its residents with a sense of home, support and security.

Based on the highest standards of construction, the building will be fully accessible to people with disabilities. It will include three stories: a ground floor with two apartments, an upper floor with one apartment, and a lower ground floor with public areas and storerooms.

A message from the Mayor of Raanana:

The city of Raanana commends the initiative of Belev Raanana - establishing a residential complex for low-functioning young adults with intellectual disabilities. It is a great privilege to take part in this important project. The City Council has allocated public land for the construction of the complex, which will provide its residents with a caring home and optimal quality of life for the rest of their lives. The complex will be built in a residential neighborhood in west Raanana, as part of the concept of inclusion of people with special needs in the community. We believe that in addition to its great significance for the residents and their families, the project will add an important dimension to the fundamental values of our entire community.
