Israel’s Largest Network of Care for Children and young adults with Severe Multiple Disabilities

ALEH provides children and young adults with severe multiple disabilities the opportunity to live a rich and productive life within a safe environment.

Over 700 children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and medical conditions receive advanced medical, educational and rehabilitative care in ALEH’s four residential facilities. In addition, ALEH provides over 26,000 outpatient treatments annually.

At ALEH, we look beyond the disability to the child within. By nurturing development and enriching quality of life, we enable each child to reach their potential.

In 1982, a group of parents made a decision that would ultimately revolutionize life for Israel’s disability community: They would do everything possible to give their severely disabled children the best available care and the opportunity to grow and develop to their fullest capabilities. With great determination, they rented an apartment, hired a special education teacher and solicited a group of dedicated volunteers to assist them in fulfilling their goal. From these humble beginnings, ALEH was formed.

This unique approach has since changed the face of rehabilitative care in Israel.
