About Love & Responsibility

When our child is born,
we learn about love.


Becoming parents, we understand the meaning of responsibility.

Becoming parents, we understand the meaning of responsibility.

The mission of parenthood is always challenging and complex.
For parents of children with special needs, it is immensely more so.

These young adults were raised by loving families, within a supportive, embracing community. 
The current professional approach strives to put an end to their exclusion from the community and allow them to live their whole lives in the communities where they grew up. No more institutions and hostels based on an outdated approach. The home we are building will represent the new conception that says:

YES to living in the community for adults with severe disabilities
YES to inclusion in society and continued contact with the loving families.

Sarah

My task as a mother is to help my children fulfill their potential. If my son wants to be a physicist, I will help him attain his goals. And if Sarah’s potential is to laugh, I will encourage her and enable her to be happy.

Tommy

Tommy is an endearing blue-eyed boy, who loves to swim, play and listen to music. We have raised him with great love in our home, and his complete helplessness has bound us to him with the strongest bonds of both affection and obligation.

Nimrod

I want to tell you about Nimrod:
Our dear son Nimrod passed away recently. My dearly beloved firstborn son was a friendly boy with a smile on his face. Being his father made me much more open and sensitive as a man, and taught me a great deal about parenthood and about myself.

Atar

Raising and cherishing our beloved Atar, we grow with her, always rising up to the challenge, with heartache, worry and determination as our constant companions. Every morning we begin again! With endless optimism, a smile, and most of all – so much love for our delightful, lovely Atar. With her amazing cheerfulness, she gives us the strength to go on!
