Previously sent to faraway institutions, these young adults will now be able to live in their own loving, supportive home community
Building Lives in the Community is the groundbreaking initiative of Belev Raanana, building a home in the community for young adults with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, and/or in need of nursing care.
The residential complex will be built in Raanana, on a plot allocated by the City of Raananan, and will provide an optimal solution, within the community, to the needs of these young men and women. The project is assisted by specialized professionals from several institutions.
The home, the first of its kind in Israel, will be built at 9 Haprachim st. Raanana on land allocated by the city of Raanana. Based on high standards of construction, the building will include 3 floors: one apartment on the first floor, two apartments on the ground floor, and public areas and offices on the lower ground floor.
This project is a groundbreaking and will be fully accessible to people with special needs. For the first time in Israel, these young people will live in a real home-that is neither an institute nor a hostel.
The 3 residential units will be run independently, providing its residents with a sense of home, support and security. In the community and close to the families.
